Description - Abba Hillel Silver and American Zionism by Mark A. Raider
Bringing together, for the first time, several distinguished historians of Zionism and the American Jewish experience, Abba Hillel Silver and American Zionism offers a comprehensive treatment of one of the twentieth century's pre-eminent Jewish political figures. Silver was a champion of American Zionism whose singular role in modern Jewish history and the establishment of the State of Israel has been hitherto neglected. The contributions to this volume are diverse in scope; they are based on previously inaccessible and unexplored archival material. The essays investigate Silver's Zionist political leadership, impact on American Judaism, ideological orientation and relations with the leaders of the Palestine Jewish community, World Zionist Organization and the Jewish state.
