1. Zionism
john ,   toronto   (01.03.13)
Respectful Zionism is good. Assimilation has already taken place.There has been mixing of Jew and non Jew after 2000 years. That is the reality. If the Lion of Judah were to come He would not recognize His people. They were sent to be teachers but now have to be taught.
2. This series should be on Ynet every day
Dani ,   Tel Aviv   (01.03.13)
Rav Shvat is amazing.
3. Right on Target
GUY ,   RAMAT HASAHRON   (01.03.13)
Finally a rabbi who is clear, concise & makes it easy to grasp concepts. Thank You!
4. Rav Kook
David Rue ,   Los Angeles   (01.03.13)
Respectfully Rav Kook was not the father of religious Zionism Before him were Rav Mohaliver and Rav Reines among others, please do your research.
5. There is a Jewish Religion and Israeli Nation.
Michael ,   California, USA   (01.03.13)
Think about it dear rabbi and you will understand that the two must become separate. Israel can only survive as a secular state among other secular states, not as a state with religion like Iran. You can celebrate your holidays while secular will celebrate theirs and shalom al Israel. The Zionist idea was wrong from the start when it did not separate religion. This must be corrected and the sooner the better, for survival sake.
6. Assimilation a good thing, America is a melting pot, racist
Steven Benassi ,   Silver Bay, MN USA   (01.04.13) say X can't marry Y.
7. To You the Jew Brother!
David Fakheri ,   L.A USA   (10.22.13)
Herzl's Zionism gave YOU the opportunity to sit on this CHAIR and deliver the Nonsenses to the REAL Jewish People!. I have great respect for * Harav Kook * but I can not Have even a little bit of respect for a FAKE follower of him like you!. But you are a Jewish Brother and your place is always reseved in my heart , Please do not abuse this feeling of the people like me to expand your unfair thoughts to the people of israel in the WORLD !.
