The 20th century proved to be one of the most challenging and defining periods in Jewish history; from the emergence of political Zionism and the tragedy of the Holocaust to the creation of the State of Israel. It is from this national entity that future Judaism will have to speak and serve its historical purpose, that is, the great upbuilding of peace." This course will examine the philosophical writings of thinkers associated with the spirit of Israel and the latter's manifestation in Jewish history. A special attention will be given to the expression of such a spirit in the contemporary relationship between Israel and the world."
