We are pleased to announce the Zman series, booklets of Zionist thought centered on the Jewish calendar. The booklets are the fruit of cooperation between members of HaMeorer (graduates of the Shiloach program of the Zionist Beit Midrash), the Menachem Begin Heritage Center, and the Ben-Gurion Heritage Institute.
The third volume was published before Purim and comprises a variety of philosophical texts originating from Eastern Jewish communities as well as Sephardic Jews from Western countries, reflecting rather aptly the verse from the Book of Esther: “… from India unto Ethiopia, one hundred and twenty-seven provinces.” Well, sort of… The attached volume is made up almost entirely of philosophical excerpts from the 19th and 20th centuries, all written by Sephardic and Mizrahi philosophers. Throughout the volume, you will find little “I.D. Cards”, which offer basic information about each of the mentioned philosophers.
Women in Zionism. Following the success of ‘From India unto Ethiopia’ on Zionism in Eastern Jewish communities, we are pleased to announce the publication of a new volume of the Zionist Beit Midrash’s ‘Zman’ series which seeks to shed light on women active in a range of fields during the Zionist revival. The texts were written by both famous and lesser-known women from different backgrounds who described their love of and endeavor for the Land of Israel.
The Beit Midrash for Zionism is pleased to present you with the new issue of 50 years since the liberation and unification of Jerusalem, which was published in cooperation with the Begin Heritage Center.
