The Land of Isaac
This chapter examines another tributary through which the modern aqedah was reinvented the second time around—this time by the poets of the Third Aliya (1919–1923), who fashioned the ancient near-sacrifice as a mainstream trope for the Zionist project in Eretz Israel. The poetry of the Third Aliya bears the traces of the secularized religious language typical of the eschatological climate of the Russian Revolution. It thus features a plethora of Jewish Christs, Christological “lambs,” mythical “kids” (sacrificial or not), and other tropes of messianic Redemption.
