Jewish Book Week and OJC Event: Theodor Herzl

Speakers: Professor Derek Penslar and Professor Yaacov Yadgar

The life of Theodor Herzl was as puzzling as it was brief. How did this cosmopolitan assimilated Jew become leader of the Zionist Movement? Why did thousands of Jews, many from traditional backgrounds, embrace him as leader? Historian Derek Penslar shows how personal crises and anti-semitism were part of his path to Zionism.
