This chapter discusses several Jewish thinkers and activists associated with the religious Zionist camp, such as Yeshayahu Leibowitz, David Hartman, and Aviezer Ravitzky. The exposition of the views articulated by these thinkers highlights the strength as well as the limitation of the religious Zionist camp. The chapter also considers the question of state–synagogue relations in Israel. Specifically, it examines the drafting of “A Comprehensive Proposal for Dealing with Issues of Religion and State in Israel,” which represents an attempt to renegotiate the meanings of Jewish life in Israel.
