Availability: Ready to download

With a new introduction by Adi Ophir: An early and fierce critique of Zionism from a Jewish child of Palestine who argued against nationalism and injustice. Born in 1893, Moshe Menuhin was part of the inaugural class to attend the first Zionist high school in Palestine, the Herzliya gymnasium in Tel Aviv. He had grown up in a Hasidic home, but eventually rejected orthodoxy With a new introduction by Adi Ophir: An early and fierce critique of Zionism from a Jewish child of Palestine who argued against nationalism and injustice. Born in 1893, Moshe Menuhin was part of the inaugural class to attend the first Zionist high school in Palestine, the Herzliya gymnasium in Tel Aviv. He had grown up in a Hasidic home, but eventually rejected orthodoxy while remaining dedicated to Judaism.   As a witness to the evolution of Israel, Menuhin grew disaffected with what he saw as a betrayal of the Jews’ spiritual principles. This memoir, written in 1965, is considered the first revisionist history of Zionism. A groundbreaking document, it discusses the treatment of the Palestinians, the effects of the Holocaust, the exploitation of the Mizrahi Jewish immigrants, and the use of propaganda to win over public opinion in America and among American Jews. In a postscript added after the Six-Day War, Menuhin also addresses the question of occupation. This new edition is updated with an introduction by Israeli philosopher Adi Ophir, putting Menuhin’s work into a contemporary historical context.   Passionate and sometimes inflammatory in its prose, and met with controversy and anger upon its original publication under the title The Decadence of Judaism in Our Time, Menuhin’s polemic remains both a thought-provoking reassessment of Zionist history and a fascinating look at one observer’s experience of this embattled corner of the world over the course of several tumultuous decades.

    Although written in 1965, this searing indictment of Zionism is as relevant today as it was when first published. It’s an astonishing polemic and considered the first revisionist history of Jewish nationalism and Zionism. Moshe Menuhin was born in Belarus into an Orthodox Jewish family in 1893 and moved to Palestine when he was 11. He died in 1983 and was a committed anti-Zionist throughout his life. He was also a proud Jew and this makes his book controversial in the extreme.

It’s an astonishing polemic and considered the first revisionist history of Jewish nationalism and Zionism. Moshe Menuhin was born in Belarus into an Orthodox Jewish family in 1893 and moved to Palestine when he was 11. He died in 1983 and was a committed anti-Zionist throughout his life. He was also a proud Jew and this makes his book controversial in the extreme. I found it an exhilarating read which still deserves a wide readership as the points he makes are as pertinent as ever. Wide-ranging in its scope and continually thought-provoking, his passionate beliefs and opinions come through loud and clear on every page. A new 2017 introduction puts the book into its historical context. For anyone troubled by the Israeli/Palestinian problem, the book explores the origins of the conflict and Menuhin's anger will surely strike a chord in many readers.
