Israel Talmud Page

In 1953, Mordecai Kaplan wrote an important volume A New Zionism.   We asked four contributors to share with us: 

  • What is the new element of A New, New Zionism that needs to be added fifty years later in 2023?
  • How can the “new element” reflect sensitivity to the present crisis regarding democracy in Israel?

Their responses remind us of the complex weaving of the religious, national, and ethical threads of Kaplanian thought

The focus on Israel’s rich but delicate place in Kaplanian thought, especially as we move deeper into the 21st century, is also reflected in our April 23rd webinar and an article about a conference staged by The Kaplan Center in Jerusalem this past July.
