Ahad Ha'am (Asher Zvi Hirsch Ginsberg)

Ahad Ha'am (1856-1927) was a Hebrew essayist and Zionist thinker. Raised by a wealthy Hasidic family, he broke with Hasidism in his adolescence and began gravitating toward the Haskalah. In 1886 he, his wife, their children, and his parents settled in Odessa, where Ha'am quickly became a prominent figure in the Ḥoveve Tsiyon movement. After living in Russia and then London for a time, Ahad Ha'am moved to Tel Aviv in 1921.
