Theodor Herzl, all by himself, comprises a mighty portion of Israel’s identity. In many ways a Zionist Moses, a radical dreamer who died on the verge of seeing his impossible dream fulfilled, Herzl’s cult of personality looms so large that he, somewhat ahistorically, is single-handedly credited with the invention of the Zionist program. Jerusalem visitors wanting to get a unique and in-depth perspective on the complicated character that was Herzl can visit The Herzl Museum, a museum and educational institute dedicated to preserving Herzl’s memory and spreading his message.
