I responded to Laya’s post about intermarriage on my blog. I linked to the response from Jewlicious, but for some reason (my pathetic Internet) it never quite went up. I’m reading Arthur Hertzberg’s anthology, The Zionist Idea, and apparently one of the more obscure Zionists saw things much as I do. Note the word “obscure.” Meaning, it’s quite possible I don’t know what I’m talking about. I’d look up which one it was, but I’m going to Israel on this very blog’s trip in about a minute, so sleep, travels, then more Zionist history when I return…

About the author



  • Great book (not too exciting though), my lesbian reform rabbi recommended it to me.

  • Zionism:The Sequal is a very similar book for contemporary Zionist thought, well worth reading.
