A MEMORABLE MILESTONE IN ISRAEL’S HISTORY
Merely a few days passed since the Jewish world and also the non-Jewish world celebrated the 125th anniversary of the first Zionist Congress, the birth of modern Zionism.
The relevance of this monumental event must be viewed in the context of today’s situation in the land of Israel, the Jewish people’s return to their homeland after 2,000 years of exile, and the world view (weltanschauung) of Israel’s existence, and the Jewish people’s place on the world stage.
