« back to classes page
Ever since God commanded Abraham “Lech lecha … go forth unto the land that I will show thee,” the Land of Israel has played a fundamental role in the shaping of Jewish consciousness. But the ideas that shape this consciousness are constantly changing. Using a variety of source texts, this course will trace the evolution of the idea of “the Land of Israel” from Biblical times to Jewish life in the diaspora to the revival of Jewish Messianism, and finally, to the West Bank settlements that played a central role in the assassination of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin.
