Pioneers of Religious Zionism

Pioneers of Religious Zionism

By Raymond Goldwater

Be the first to review this product

This book describes the lives and philosophies of the most important rabbinical Zionists of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. They joined secular Zionists in the struggle for the re-establishment of a Jewish national home – an unusual act for their time – and had to contend with fierce opposition and condemnations from many rabbis in Eastern Europe, who believed that the return of the Jewish people to its ancestral homeland of Israel depended upon the arrival of the Messiah. In their lives and writings, Rabbis Alkali, Kalischer, Mohliver, Reines, Kook and Maimon provided the foundation on which modern religious Zionism was built.
