About the Event:
Rabbi Seidler-Feller argues that the establishment of the State of Israel constitutes only a partial fulfillment of the goals of Zionism. Zionism also aimed at renewing the Jewish people and propelling them to constitute a model society. Yet, Zionist discourse has, over the past decades, been stuck in a political mode and has become largely irrelevant, even to those who are passionate supporters of Israel. Rabbi Seidler-Feller proposes to reinvigorate the Zionist conversation and to awaken a vital ideology that can be a source of Jewish renewal while providing a meaningful focus to the Zionist project.
