Rav Kook's Lamentation in Jerusalem for our Yom Ha'atzmaut Program
For today's Yom Ha'atzmaut program, our students learned about Rav Avraham Yitzchak Kook’s little-known Hesped (eulogy) for Theodor Herzl through which he attempted to demonstrate, in a Dvar Torah elucidating the roles in our tradition of Mashi’ach Ben Yosef and Mashi’ach Ben David, that religious Zionists should look upon secular Zionism (and, of course, Zionists) as an indispensable ingredient working toward the ultimate redemption of the Jewish People.
