#111 - National Identity, Spinoza & Zionism 

In this episode we take a deeper look at the relationship between National Identity and Religion. How was this classically understood in the world? We also look at how this specifically applies to the Jews. How long did it take for Spinoza’s plea for tolerance to become accepted? How did this affect the Jews in Europe?   Ben Gurion and other Zionist thinkers claimed to be inspired by Spinoza. How much is there in common between them? Did Ben Gurion’s policy with the religious and charedi have to do with Spinoza’s plea for tolerance?
