Did Herzl Really Say That?

Directed by: Ido Bahat
350 Minutes, 2006

Herzl envisaged an old-new state, and planned every last detail. Among other things, he spoke of what a religious leadership should do, how Jews and Arabs should get along, and voiced opinions on the status of Jerusalem.

Oren Harman and Yanay Ofran embark upon a personal journey to the heart of contemporary “Israeliness”. They discuss what has happened to the old boundaries of identity that once divided Israeli society and defined the power relations within. In doing so, the presenters chart religious, national, personal and cultural identities in Israel today.
