The Zionist Imperative:
Zionism and Jewish Identity
There is a deep problem with regard to the “Jewish nature of Israel,” which requires serious examination. Dror suggests that neither religion nor political Zionism continue to provide sufficient definitions for Jewish identity. Today's predicament is similar to the situation of the Jews after several periods of destruction and exile in Jewish history. In each case, Jews survived, and even thrived, under conditions of adversity. Dror calls for “a transcendent, peak-level creativity” which will rejuvenate the “Jewish nature” of Israel.
