dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this paper is to explore the relationship between Rabbi Abraham Isaac Kook, his son Rabbi Tzvi Yehuda Kook, and the contemporary Israeli settlement group Gush Emunim, for the purpose of tracing the evolution of the ideology of redemption and attaining a better understanding of the philosophy of these Israeli settlers. Central to Jewish thought as a whole, redemption lies at the heart of the religious ideology of the settlement movement, but the vision of redemption preached by Gush Emunim takes a different form than that of Abraham Kook, despite scholarly assertion that he is the source of Gush Emunim’s ideology. Abraham Kook follows the kabbalistic model of redemption, in which redemption comes about slowly through penitence and individual religious observance. Gush Emunim, on the other hand, believe humans have a much more active role to play in the process. The restorative model, which their ideology follows, is also active and assertive, requiring collective human initiative to ensure its fulfillment. The disconnect between Abraham’s passive, patient kabbalistic redemption and Gush Emunim’s active, militant restorative redemption can be explained by the younger Rabbi Kook. Tzvi Yehuda Kook reinterpreted his father’s message in light of political events and personal ambition, creating an entirely new vision of redemption, which Gush Emunim adopted.en_US
