Is Israel "The First Flowering of our Redemption"? On the Religious Significance of the State of Israel
The prayer for the welfare of the State of Israel baldly states that the establishment of the State constitutes the “first flowering of our redemption”. The messianism inherent in this assertion assumed great political force in the wake of the ‘miraculous’ 1967 “Six Day War” when many began to believe that redemption was at hand. In fact, a movement was born that gave concrete expression to this messianic theology.
This seminar will consider a range of religious Zionist viewpoints in addition to that of the messianic Kookian school in an attempt at clarifying the religious meaning that can be attributed to the renewal of Jewish sovereignty in the ‘promised’ land.
