“Dream and deed are not as different as many think. All the deeds of men are dreams at first, and become dreams in the end.” Theodor Herzl

Over 100 years ago, most Jews lived in Europe. Today, for the first time in 2,000 years or more, the largest Jewish population resides in the Land of Israel. How did this happen? We explore the writings and lives of the Visionaries of Modern Zionism by diving into the passion, rationale, rhetoric, despair and hope of Hess, Pinsker, Herzl, Nordau, Zangwill, Jabotinsky, Gordon and Rabbi Kook – each appealing to a different part of the Jewish world, each a visionary whose sight telescoped beyond the ordinary and reached so far into our own future.

For only if we know the dreams of the past can we learn how much further we ourselves could learn to see.
