Ahad Ha'Am At Last

By Wayne Firestone

The Jewish Peoplehood Hub, April 2010

Firestone, the President and CEO of Hillel: the Foundation for Jewish Life, argues that the new era of Israel-Diaspora relations isn't a rejection of classical Zionism. Rather, it is the acceptance of a different model of classical Zionism, the one propounded by "cultural Zionist" Ahad Ha'Am. And it is uniquely suited for the today's generation of college-age Jews, the so-called Millennials that are the focus of the work of Hillel.
