Reading Hans Kohn in Haifa

By Brian M. Smollett

Association for Jewish Studies (AJS), Spring 2007

The author recounts his experience attending an ulpan (Hebrew language training program) at the University of Haifa in Israel, while living with Arab-Israeli roommates, during the beginning of the 2006 war in Lebanon. The author draws a parallel between his experience and that of author Hans Kohn, who left pre-state Israel and the Zionist movement in 1933 because of the conflict between the movement and surrounding Arabs.
