Religious Zionism (Hebrew: ציונות דתית, Tziyonut Datit, or דתי לאומי, Dati Leumi, or כיפה סרוגה, Kippah seruga) is an ideology that combines Zionism and Jewish religious faith. Religious Zionists are observant Jews who support Zionist efforts to build a Jewish state in the Land of Israel.
Famous quotes containing the word religious:
“The tradition I cherish is the ideal this country was built upon, the concept of religious pluralism, of a plethora of opinions, of tolerance and not the jihad. Religious war, pooh. The war is between those who trust us to think and those who believe we must merely be led.”
—Anna Quindlen (b. 1952)
