Chapter Summary

Ruppin formally joined the Zionist Movement in 1905, after attending the 7th Zionist Congress that took place that year in Basel. His plan formulated solutions to the crisis of colonization in Palestine. It must be noted that he was aware of the specific model of transformation and believed that "the transference of the Messianic i.e. of Judaism from the religious to the social field" is one of the attributes of the "Jewish social sense". It is possible that the truths and rules he thought out are not written in any book, but they are taken from the book of life of Jewish settlement in the Land of Israel. The image of an impartial and objective scientist, was one of the sources of Ruppin's powerful status in the movement. He was also, the creator of the creators – the group of politicians and bureaucrats who established the State of Israel.
