The nature of the relationship between the Jewish people and the land of Israel has long been of interest to Jewish historians. Over the centuries, though, scholars’ depictions of this relationship have undergone radical changes. Brian Amkraut, Executive Director of CWRU–Siegal Lifelong Learning, outlines the major trends (from the late nineteenth century—when Jewish history emerged as a discipline—until the recent rise of the new post-Zionist historians), the cause of the shifts, and their impact on how we think about Israel’s history.
