When We Were the Vanguard

By Leonard Fein

Forward Association, 2009

Leonard Fein recalls more than sixty years of involvement with Habonim, the leftist Zionist movement. He looks back at when the movement was at its height, buoyed by the promise of the newly formed Jewish state and sensibility, a continuing capacity for the specific hope and indignation that seeks the very best in Jewish values and ethics and aspirations and rejects the hype, the sham, the planting and reaping of fear that informs so much of our communal life.
