Show Summary Details


This section summarizes the research of the previous chapters and brings the historical analysis to a close. The Religious Zionist community remains tightly knit and self-reinforcing, so despite its detractors even from within, a well-organized core succeeds in sustaining what was in some ways a hermetic interpretive stance. Partly in order to remain on track in the face of opposition, frustration and anxiety, it radicalized and became even more inward-looking. While it once captured the imagination of many outside the community, its influence has since declined, but not its fervour.
