New Insights in Zionism - Yosef Haim Brenner

De laatste lezing in deze reeks

Gepubliceerd op: 18 november 2021

De laatste lezing in de serie New insights in Zionism, van 2 februari 2022, gaat over Yosef Haim Brenner.

The sixth and last lecture in this series is dedicated to Yosef Haim Brenner (1881-1921); pioneer, socialist and writer, both a committed Zionist and at the same time a burning critic of Jewish life, Jewish religion and of Zionism itself.

His publication The Specter of Shemad (conversion) is a gateway to questions that Brenner framed in the sharpest way and which are still burning in Jewish life today. Brenner has earned a reputation for his ascetic lifestyle and his courage to go against conventions, evident in unique sayings such as "nevertheless" and "the right to shout."

These features, together with his tragic death in the riots of 1921, created an aura around him that made him an almost legendary figure in the history of the literature and culture of the Land of Israel.
This lecture will focus on his charismatic character and peculiar thought.
