Item Description:

Herzl died at a young age, and none of his successors was ever able to bridge as many gaps within the Jewish world. From the most religious to the most secular, Zionism had its opponents. But history is full of strange twists and turns, and sometimes they yield unexpected results. Between the 1905 Russian Revolution and World War I, Rabbi Wein shows how the rise and fall of empires led to posthumous fulfillment of Herzl’s dream.

• how Marxist ideology came to permeate Zionism
• Ben Yehuda and the development of Modern Hebrew
• Kaiser Wilhelm – a case of an enemy becoming a prophet
• the rumor that gave rise to the Balfour Declaration
