Essays in Honor of Israel's 70th: Libbenu be-Mizrach (Paperback)
During 5778, Jews around the world have celebrated the milestone of the State of Israel's 70th birthday. Our joy and expression of gratitude to the Almighty reached a crescendo on Yom Ha-Atzma'ut, but as Rosh Hashanah 5779 approaches and this special year comes to a close, the Orthodox Union presents this collection of essays to honor the occasion and reflect upon its significance. Despite our being on the other side of the world, the American Jewish community has felt the transformative impact of Medinat Yisrael in every facet of life. The scholars writing in this volume harness a variety of areas of expertise - from education to art, psychology to dayyanut - to explore the profound, religious meaning of the Zionist enterprise during this historic century.
