Zionism Then, Zionism Now
Lecturer: Rabbi Marty Lawson
Wednesday, February 5, 2020 | 10:30 AM

What is the origin of the term “Zionism?” Is Zion a place or a concept? This lecture present by Rabbi Marty Lawson will explore the early biblical notions of Zion and how it has evolved over the centuries. Did Theodor Herzl create a new form of Zionism or was he forming a “new” political reality? What did Ahad Ha-Am, A.D. Gordon and Hayim Nachman Bialik contribute to Zionism today?
