About Judaism 3.0: In this landmark book, Gol Kalev demonstrates how Zionism has turned into the organizing principle of Judaism. Analyzing long-term shifts in Israel, Diaspora Judaism as well as global trends that impact the state of Judaism, Kalev shows how Zionism has become the primary conduit through which both Jews and non-Jews relate to Judaism – in the positive and negative alike. More

Endorsements for Judaism 3.0:

Gol Kalev does not just know Theodor Herzl – he lives and breathes Theodor Herzl…This book should trigger the conversation the Jewish community needs about Israel, Zionism, Judaism and Identity. Bravo!”

Professor Gil Troy, author – The Zionist Ideas

“A courageous thesis that must be part of any serious discussion of the future of Israel and the Jewish people.”

Michael Oren, historian, former ambassador of Israel to the United States

“Kalev picks up where Herzl left off…A must read for people of all religious and political backgrounds who want to get a deeper understanding of the state of Zionism and Judaism today.”

Fleur Hassan-Nahoum, Deputy Mayor of Jerusalem

This book should play an important role in the discussions about the future of world Jewry and its relations with Israel.”

Natan Sharansky, former Chairman of The Jewish Agency, former Deputy Prime Minister of Israel

Gol Kalev’s book has the merit to transform the very essence of the State of Israel to becoming an objective expression of Jewish identity

Dr. Georges Yitzhak Weisz, author – Theodor Herzl: A New Reading

“This book has sparked as much conversation as it has because the premise is so interesting, so counterintuitive and demands of us that we think many things anew. That is perhaps the greatest gift a book can give.”

Dr. Daniel Gordis, author – We Stand Divided
