Voices of Zionism w/Steve Zipperstein: In a series of presentations, we will explore the full range of Jewish voices wrestling within the Zionist movement. We’ll examine Zionist dreams and realities, concepts of home, refuge, liberation and catastrophe in a complex and fractious movement. Among the thinkers evaluated will be Leon Pinsker, Ahad Ha’am, Theodor Herzl, Jabotinsky, and Rav Kook.
Steven J. Zipperstein is the Daniel E. Koshland Professor in Jewish Culture and History at Stanford. He is the author and editor of eight books including “Elusive Prophet: Ahad Ha’am and the Origins of Zionism” (1993) which won the National Jewish Book Award and has been translated into Hebrew.
His most recent book, published by WW Norton early next year, is entitled “Pogrom: Kishinev and the Tilt of History.” Zipperstein is an editor of Yale’s “Jewish Lives” series, an editorial board member of Jewish Review of Books and lives in Berkeley with his wife Susan Berrin.
