Religious Zionism and Secular Judaism in Israeli Society

By Charles S. Liebman

Charles S. Liebman, 2000

The boundaries distinguishing religious-Zionism and ultra-Orthodoxy (the haredi world) are increasingly blurred. One can still distinguish the two broad communities, each, the haredi in particular, composed of a number of sub-communities. The two broad communities remain distinct in dress, styles of life, nominal attitudes toward Zionism and the sanctity of the state, and attitudes, for the time being at least, toward secular education. But the basic ideological divisions have, in my opinion, narrowed so considerably that one is justified in describing a unified religious camp within Israeli society.
