At one point, discussions around definitions of Zionism meant deep ideological debates about the merits of Rav Kook’s religious Zionism versus A.D. Gordon’s Labor Zionism. In the past 10 years, the conversation has changed dramatically and now centers on “right-wing Zionists” versus “left-wing Zionists” versus “anti-Zionists” and “non-Zionists.” The word “Zionism” may be seen as a dirty word by some on the left and may be a requirement by some on the right. When did our relationship to Israel get so complicated?

In this five-session online course taught by Shaina Wasserman, we will examine the changing meaning of “Zionism” over time, by starting with the founder of Zionism, Theodor Herzl, in order to better understand how the word challenges us today. Using source materials, we will share our personal narratives and connections to Israel and Zionism as we practice having honest and brave conversations with each other.

All are welcome, and scholarships are available. Please contact Brigid Goggin at with questions.
