Daniel Gordis – Jerusalem’s Great Synagogue, Zionism, The Bible and the Future of Human Freedom, January 2010

Introducing the theme of his next book, Daniel Gordis presents his thesis that Israeli is the guarantor of the ethnic nation-state, and the nation-state, in turn, is the guarantor of human diversity and heterogeneity, and therefore, of human freedom. He traces all of this to a close reading of the Tower of Babel story, showing the continuing of ideas from the Hebrew Bible, to Zionism to the enduring human quest for freedom.
