Safed: Jewish Exile in Palestine?
Termin: 01.05.2023
Beginn: 19:00 Uhr
Ort: Katholische Akademie in Berlin, Hannoversche Str. 5, 10115 Berlin

In the sixteenth century, mainly after the Ottomans took over the country, a group of Jewish personalities of great stature gathered in Safed and reshaped Judaism. Prof. Raz-Krakotzkin’s recent book, Mishnah Knowledge, Biblical Knowledge: Safed and the Zionist Culture (Jerusalem 2022) examines the consciousness of Safed in the sixteenth century against the modern Zionist consciousness, and presents them as two theological-political models of settlement in the Land of Israel. The Safed model was based on the Mishnah and imagined the land after the destruction of the temple. Zionist imagination, on the other hand, looked to the period of occupation and settlement, by Joshua and the judges, similarly to the phantasy of the modern Christian West.

The discussion will reflect on how the contrast of Zionism and Safed offers new paths to a renewed formulation of Jewish Israeli culture and the future of Falastin.
