Zionism and Anti-Zionism: The History of Two Opposing Ideas

For the first time in many decades, the debate between Zionism and anti-Zionism seems to be at the center of public discourse throughout America and the West. But what are the fundamental beliefs, assumptions, and narratives behind these two opposing ideas? In this series, join Dr. Einat Wilf, a former member of Israel’s parliament and a scholar of Zionist thought for a comprehensive look at the history of Zionism—political, social, and religious—and the schools of anti-Zionism that have opposed it.

Dr. Einat Wilf is a leading thinker on Israel and Zionist thought. She was a member of the Israeli parliament from 2010 to 2013, where she served as chair of the Education Committee and a member of the Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee. Dr. Wilf is the author of seven books, including her most recent, We Should All Be Zionists (2022), and her co-authored book, The War of Return: How Western Indulgence of the Palestinian Dream Has Obstructed the Path to Peace. Dr. Wilf was previously a visiting professor at Georgetown University, where she gave a seminar on “Zionism and Anti-Zionism.” ZoĂ© Tara Zeigherman was one of Dr. Wilf’s students in that seminar. As a 2022 Tikvah Beren Summer Fellow, she worked to develop the course curriculum into the series before you today. She currently works as an associate producer in New York City.
