(p.1) Introduction
The Sabra

Oz Almog

University of California Press

This introductory chapter first sets out the focus of the book, which is on the second generation of Zionist Israelis, the first generation to be educated and socialized within the Yishuv—the Jewish community in Palestine. It portrays them and tries to understand them and their influence on the society around them largely through an analysis of the writings they produced. The Sabras were a product of what historians call the Hebrew revolution. The discussion then turns to the Sabra as a cultural archetype, the Sabra writers as generational spokesmen, and the Sabra as a “secular Yeshiva student”.

Keywords:   Zionist Israelis, Jewish community, Yishuv, Sabras
