Pioneers of Religious Zionism
By Raymond Goldwater
Distributed by Coronet Books
158 pages, Illustrated
This book describes the lives and philosophies of the most important rabbinical Zionists of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries: Yehuda ben Shlomo Alkalai (1798-1878), Zvi Hirsch Kalischer (1795-1874), Samuel Mohliver (1824-1891), Jacob Reines (1839-1915), Abraham Isaac Kook (1865-1935) and Judah Leib (Fishman) Maimon (1875-1962).
They joined secular Zionists in the struggle for the re-establishment of a Jewish national home -- an unusual act for their time -- and had to contend with fierce opposition and condemnations from many rabbis in Eastern Europe.
