Aliyah of the Mind: Zionism as Jewish Emancipation

December 16 @ 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Free

Most people think Zionism is about supporting Israel. But really it means something much deeper: It’s about build­ing and doing and Jewish pride. It was launched a century ago as a revolution against the stagnation of Jewish life and in the face of increasingly dangerous an­tisemitism. Dr. Hazony will focus on both public and educational aspects of this new approach to promoting Zionism and Jew­ish values in the 21st Century. Hazony finds that the way to attract today’s young people to Zionism is to connect them with the vibrancy and creativity of contempo­rary Israeli culture. He will explain how he thinks this can work and why it is im­portant for the future of Zionism.

Dr. David Hazony (Ph.D. The Hebrew University of Jerusalem) has been a fellow at the Shalem Center in Jerusalem. He was the founding editor of The Tower Magazine and was the Editor-in-Chief of Azure. His articles frequently appear in important periodicals such as The Jerusalem PostThe New RepublicCommentaryThe Jewish Chronicle, and Moment. He is also a frequent commentator on CNN, MSNBC, and Fox News. He serves as a contributing editor at The Forward. He is currently the executive director of the Israel Innovation Fund. He is the author or editor of several books including The Ten Commandments: How Our Most Ancient Moral Text Can Renew Modern Life (Scribner, 2010), which was a finalist for the 2010 National Jewish Book Award; and New Essays on Zionism (coedited with Michael Oren and Yoram Hazony, Shalem Press, 2007). His translation of Uri Bar-Joseph’s “The Angel” (HarperCollins, 2016) won the 2017 National Jewish Book Award.
