Topic: Connections to the Land
The core Zionist narrative of Israel presents an unbroken, unwavering connection between the people of Israel and its land. True as it is, individuals have felt at times doubts, pain, and critique as they were articulating their particular attachment to it. In this learning session, we’ll look at works by Yitzhak Shalev, Rachel Korazim, Nathan Alterman, Yehuda Amichai, Ephraim Kishon, Balfour Hakak, and Amos Oz.
