The Israel Archives

This week marks the 60th anniversary of Israel's independence. To commemorate the event, we went through TNR's writings on Israel, decade-by-decade, and selected some of the most memorable. Below, you’ll find pieces from 1997 to the present, including those from our Zionism at 100 issue, which featured a piece by Martin Peretz on its history and another by Michael Ignatieff on the legacy of Theodor Herzl. In addition, Hillel Halkin and Leon Wieseltier meditate on the two-state solution. Stay tuned for more lists as we dig deeper into the archives.
