From the Editors:

In the Beginning
By Ofir Haivry


Essays:

The End of Zionism?
By Yoram Hazony
The ideology that built the State of Israel has given way to a Post-Zionism that sanctifies Jewish disempowerment.

The Uses and Advantages of Pain
By Joshua Weinstein
Like the human body, the body politic depends for its survival on its sense of pain--that is, its capacity to identify danger.

Act and Comprehend
By Ofir Haivry
Both Judaism and Zionism were predicated on the idea that human fulfillment can only come of correct action. Today’s confusion is the result of the exaltation of principle over deed.

On the Commandment to Question
By Mordechai Gafni
The quest for a common spiritual language for Israeli society requires recognizing that questioning God is not a sign of antagonism towards religion, but the peak of Jewish spirituality.
