Is the Wandering Jew in Contemporary Israeli Literature a Paradox?

May
10

Early 20th century ideologies foresaw the journey of the Wandering Jew coming to an end: Communists suggested that he would disappear with the dissolution of nations, Zionists believed that he would return home. The Wandering Jew has not disappeared from contemporary literature, among Jews and others. Galit Hasan-Rokem will discuss the surprising presence of this figure in a number of Israeli novels from the 1970s to the present.
