  1. Dreamers: It was an impossible dream but Hess, Pinsker, Herzl, and Weizmann laid the groundwork.
  2. The Mandate: Ben-Gurion, Jabotinsky, Brandeis, and Weizmann slugged it out against a background of British control and Arab opposition.
  3. The Father: Ben-Gurion led the new country through war, mass immigration and the trauma of German reparations.
  4. 1967: Eshkol and Dayan directed the country through the war that changed Israel and the Middle East.
  5. Women: Israel would not be the country it is without its women. Golda, Leah Goldberg, Naomi Shemer and others made great contributions.
  6. Peace, Prosperity and a Weird Coalition: Begin, Netanyahu, and Bennett demonstrated courage, brilliance, and corruption as Israel entered a new century.
