Women Realizing the Zionist Idea in the Ladino Zionist-Literary Periodical El Maccabeo, 1914-1917

Nitsa Dori


This article will discuss women’s writing in the Ladino Zionist-literary periodical, El Maccabeo, during early twentieth century Thessaloniki. We will sketch the writers’ profiles, and examine their goals and the literary means used to realize them. These indices will help us evaluate women’s place in shaping Thessalonikian Jewry in general, the realization of the Zionist idea in particular, and how the articles serve as a literary and historical source for Thessalonikian Jewry during this period.

Likewise, we will attempt to organize their articles along a historical-literary continuum and understand how they reflect the move from tradition to innovation.
