How Much Would be Enough? The Revolution of Zionism

For two-thousand years, Jewish history was defined by wandering. This changed with the miraculous birth of the State of Israel in 1948. How did this new political reality change the fundamentals of Jewish identity and spirituality? Explore a radical connection between the visions of early Zionist thinkers and the ancient wisdom of the Rabbis of the Talmud with Rabbi Menachem Creditor as we address a basic question—how much would truly be enough?

Rabbi Menachem Creditor serves as the Pearl and Ira Meyer Scholar in Residence at UJA-Federation New York and was the founder of Rabbis Against Gun Violence. An acclaimed author, scholar, and speaker with over 4 million views of his online videos and essays, he was named by Newsweek as one of the fifty most influential rabbis in America. His numerous books and six albums of original music include the global anthem “Olam Chesed Yibaneh” and the COVID-era two-volume anthology “When We Turned Within.” He and his wife Neshama Carlebach live in New York, where they are raising their five children. In addition, Neshama Carlebach’s father was the famous rabbi/cantor, Shlomo Carlebach!
