The establishment of a Jewish State presented growing challenges to the collectivist, statist, patriotic Zionist narrative that dominated Israel's early years.  Kassow and Roskies will examine Jewish writing during the Holocaust, the Renaissance of Jewish life in America after WWII and Jewish creativity behind the iron curtain in the Soviet Union before 1973 as they tie into the foundations and formation of the Jewish State of Israel.

This lecture is part of the Highlights from the Posen Library Lecture Series.
