For most Israelis and Zionsits, the name Aaron David Gordon, or “Aleph Dalet Gordon” conjures up the early Zionist ideals of returning to labor and working the land. But the Zionist philosopher from the early 20th century is much more than that. A new book entitled If we will know how to search for life is an anthology of articles written by contemporary students of the great Zionist teacher who may have died 100 years ago, but whose influence is still relevant today. The book, edited by Na’ama Shaked, is being funded through the Israeli crowdfunding site headstart. Film teacher Ya’akov Friedland contributed one of the chapters and spoke to reporter Arieh O’Sullivan on Gordon and the book.
