Nearly a century since his passing, the life and work of Aharon David Gordon (1856-1922) have drawn renewed attention. A flurry of new publications from manuscripts, scholarly studies and renewed popular interest in Gordon among social activists and artists point to the vitality of his thought as a point of entry into Zionist history and a means of exploring Jewish cultural and social renaissance today. This major figure is little-known in the English-speaking world.
