The Rebirth of Israel
DVD by Gordon Robertson
“At Basel, I founded the Jewish State. Perhaps in five years and certainly within 50, everyone will know it.”
Theodor Herzl wrote these words in his diary on September 3, 1897. Fifty years and nine months later Herzl’s dream became a reality when David Ben-Gurion announced the establishment of the State of Israel on May 14, 1948.
The Hope is the story of the half-century before Israel’s rebirth, told through the eyes of the Nation’s founders.
