Friedrich Lowenberg runs off to an island for 20 years after having his heart broken by his materialistic girlfriend. He returns completely surprised by the radical change that has taken place in what Herzl called the Jewish homeland of Palestine. In a mere 20 years the desolate "Old-New Land" has become a major port for international commerce and a true Utopia for Jewish people from around the world. Hear about Herzl's prophetic predictions from 1902 which include a high-tech light rail train and his innovative ideas for an electoral system and taxes, all well before the actual State of Israel was reestablished.

The listener will be fascinated to hear how Herzl's vision of Israeli life compares to the actual version we live in today. Don't miss it!
