We are pleased to announce the first volume in 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.
On behalf of the Institute for Zionist Strategies, the Menachem Begin Heritage Center and the Ben-Gurion Heritage Institute we are delighted to present you with the third volume in theHa’zeman series – a periodical dealing with Zionist philosophy in the context of the Hebrew Calendar.
The new 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.
