The history of two opposing ideas

A new online course with Dr. Einat Wilf 

and Zoé Tara Zeigherman

For the first time in many decades, the debate between Zionism and anti-Zionism seems to be at the center of public discourse throughout America and the West. But what are the fundamental beliefs, assumptions, and narratives behind these two opposing ideas? Why do some embrace the idea of a state for the Jewish people, while others so passionately resist it?

In this series, join Dr. Einat Wilf, a former member of Israel’s parliament and a scholar of Zionist thought, and Zoé Tara Zeigherman, a filmmaker and former Tikvah Fellow, for a comprehensive look at the history of Zionism—political, social, and religious—and the schools of anti-Zionism that have opposed it.
