Beyond Political Messianism: The Poetry of Second-Generation 
Religious Zionist Settlers

By David C. Jacobson

ISBN 978-1-934843-72-7 (cloth) $69.00 / £57.50


May 2011

Series: Israel: Society, Culture and History

Summary: In recent decades, a group of second-generation religious 
Zionist West Bank settlers have turned away from the collectivist 
political messianic ideology of the first generation of settlers and 
have begun to explore poetry as a mode of individual self-expression. 
Based on interviews of eight key figures in this new trend and an 
analysis of their poetry, Beyond Political Messianism: The Poetry of 
Second-Generation Religious Zionist Settlers tells the story of how 
they revolutionized the religious Zionist settler culture by moving 
poetry into the mainstream of that culture and how they introduced 
into the world of secular Israeli literature images and language 
drawn from their lives as religiously observant Jews.  Among the 
themes central to these poets' concerns are: the formation of a 
religious identity based on faith and ritual observance, the 
relationship of the contemporary Jew to the Bible and to traditional 
Jewish texts, appropriate ways to write about erotic experiences, and 
the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Author: (Ph.D. University of California, Los Angeles) is Professor of 
Judaic Studies at Brown University. His publications include Creator, 
Are You Listening?: Israeli Poets on God and Prayer (Indiana 
University Press, 2007); Modern Midrash:  The Retelling of 
Traditional Jewish Narratives by Twentieth-Century Hebrew 
Writers  (State University of New York Press, 1987); Does David Still 
Play Before You?: Israeli Poetry and the Bible (Wayne State 
University Press, 1997); Palestinian Identities in History and 
Literature, ed. (with Kamal Abdel-Malek Israeli, New York: St. 
Martin's Press, 1999); and History and Literature: New Readings of 
Jewish Texts in Honor of Arnold J. Band (with William Cutter, Brown 
Judaic Studies, 2002).

Beyond Political Messianism: The Poetry of Second-Generation 
Religious Zionist Settlers


"In lucid writing and armed with depths of understanding and 
knowledge, David C. Jacobson leads his reader into an exploration of 
Jewish thought rooted in the teachings of Rabbi Avraham Yitzhak Kook 
and his son Rabbi Zvi Yehuda Kook and their disciples. Against this 
background, Jacobson explains the framework of the new poetic 
phenomenon which has grown at the very heart of the religious Zionist 
community, an ideological and political movement which largely held 
back from poetic activity from its inception. The writer invites his 
reader, indeed all of us, to a challenging experience – of thought 
and poetry blended together."

­Avinoam Rosenak, Professor of Jewish Thought, Hebrew University, Jerusalem
