Many Jewish historians in the Zionist age have considered Jewish history to have a single outcome—and Jewish ideology to hold a single opinion: the misery of “exile” ends only with a Jewish return home to Zion. But Jews have lived in diasporas for more than 2,500 years and have not only suffered in them but have also created, flourished and even thrived. Some Jewish ideologies reflect this far more balanced experience. In this course, we recover them — and the other side of Jewish history and thought — in which diaspora competes with Zion, allowing for the growth of Torah even when Jews are distant from their original home.
