Synopsis: The late Rabbi Haim Hirschensohn was a religious Zionist philosopher and theoretician who dared to confront the complex problems of establishing a modern Jewish state according to the concepts of halakhah (Jewish law) and to lay a halakhic foundation for a democratic, theological and political regime. In this book Professor Eliezer Schweid analyzes Hirschensohn's theories as part of his own comprehensive research on Jewish national thought in Eretz Israel during the first half of the twentieth century.
