A Very Short Guide to Zionism and Israel

Rabbi Elliot Cosgrove

Zionism is the nationalist movement calling for the establishment and support of an independent state for the Jewish people in its ancient homeland. Connecting the history and ideas of Zionism with contemporary Jewish life, this short course will enable participants to see our own Jewish experience as following naturally from important past conversations about the proper frame and content of Jewish life. These four sessions will raise key questions about being Jewish in a non-Jewish world, about Israel and diaspora, and about the ongoing relationship between Jewish religion and peoplehood.
