Welcome to Zionism U

If you want to learn about Zionism, you’ve come to the right place. A movement inspired by a pamphlet written by a Viennese Jew by the name of Theodor Herzl grew into a worldwide political movement. Its roots, of course, go much deeper. Back to biblical times.

Our Free Courses - Zionism 101

Our Zionism 101 series offers 50 films on Zionist history. All films are original, absolutely free, and can only be found on this site. Learn aspects of Zionist history that most people know little about such as Christian Zionism, the revival of Hebrew and the Jewish fighting undergrounds. Discover the people who made Israel a reality, the battles they fought, the setbacks that nearly defeated them.

Whether you’re starting from scratch, or looking to brush up on your Ben-Gurion, this site has it all. Instructors looking to teach about Zionism will find a wealth of material including lesson plans, PowerPoints and supporting documents to help in the classroom. So look around. Explore our site. Sign up for free access to our courses and films. We hope you enjoy watching them as much as we enjoyed creating them.
