Jews and Their Isms: A Convergence of Two Historical Moments

By Eddy Portnoy

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, December 2012

This article focuses on two social movements, socialism and Zionism, and explains how these two movements converged. The Russian Revolution occurred at the same moment the Balfour Declaration was published. The Bolshevik government took center stage in the public arena, leaving Zionism in the shadows. Bolshevism was finished by the 1940s and Zionism gained its chance in the spotlight.
