The Connection of Zionism and Reform Judaism Throughout History
The objective of my research project is to answer some of the many questions in regards to the correlation of both the movement of Reform Judaism and Zionism over time. The beginning of this relationship had a much larger gap of interests than today's prevalence. I plan on using first person sources as well as scholarly reports to discover the processes and contributing factors that caused such a drastic change in the Reform Movement's view on Zionism.
