Religion and Nationalism in IL The foundation of the state of Israel has been one of the most important moments in Jewish modern history and has changed in many ways the Jewish religion. In its early days, the Zionist movement was a deeply secular one. Most of the religious communities were reluctant or openly opposed to its irreverent project, which tried to change with its bare hands the course of history. Nowadays, Religious-Zionism, and other radical orthodox and ultra-orthodox communities are powerful and influential in every aspect of Israeli politics, public life and decision making. In many ways, the long interaction between Religion and nationalism has made Israel what it is now. How have the Jewish communities in Israel changed since the beginning of Zionism and until now? How and did religion radicalize the “Zionist dream”? What role does Religious-Zionism have in the occupation? Why are there so few left-wing religious communities in Israel? How did many Ultra-orthodox communities evolve to be synonymous with radical right-wing visions? We will talk about the history of these multifaceted questions but also about actuality; we will get to know the different communities in modern Judaism, their ideologies, and their political views; we will dig into questions of language and narrative, and the part of Modern Hebrew in all this. *** Early Bird Price Starts at- 1200 NIS - Until 10/12 Regular Price Starts at - 1300 NIS - Until 31/12 Late Price Starts at - 1400 NIS - Until first lesson of the course *** We have made a small change in our pricing structure and are now offering a sliding scale in order to give you the opportunity to donate 100 or 200 shekels when you buy a course.
