The Nationalization of the Jewish People - A Conceptual Threshold for Zionist Ideology

By Shimon Samuels

World Zionist Organization (WZO), Winter 1979

The Jews entered history as an extended family or "tribe"; later by a process of spiritual elevation Judaism became a "religion"; still later in the ghettos of the Diaspora, Jewish observance was a "vocation" or way of life; in the modern period, volumes appeared on Jewish "civilization" or "Jewishness", finally, one became accustomed to speaking of the "Jewish people." It is now time to add a new stage in the continuum of Jewish development - that of the "Jewish nation.
