Reclaiming Zionism

By Eli Lederhendler

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), November 2004

Lederhendler states that Zionism is the existential core of Jewish being. To reclaim Zionism in Jewish life, he proposes three principles that should be understood: that Zionists associate themselves with a body of discourse, that Zionists view Jewishness as a quality that is relevant to human understanding and activity, and that Zionism is a sentiment that should be expressed in a meaningful way.
