JWSS 2500 - Zionism and the Challenges of Jewish Statehood
Examines the birth and development of political, religious, cultural, and social movements that gave rise to the modern state of Israel in 1948 and continue to shape Israeli society and politics today. Readings are drawn from Zionism’s founders and early opponents in nineteenth-century Europe (Herzl, Ha’Am, Buber, etc.); the state’s founders, leaders, and critics (Ben Gurion, Kook, etc.); and ends with contemporary thinkers in Israel and the United States (Morris, Hartman, Eisen, etc.). Emphasizes historical context as well as comparative analysis with other forms of nationalism, other movements of Judaism, and more.
