The Jewish Guardian Archive

The Jewish Guardian was an English-language anti-Zionist periodical that appeared during the 70s and 80s. It contained a rich treasury of articles by famous rabbis as well as historians and activists, detailing the Torah view on the issues of the time as well as analyses of the history of Zionism. It was mailed out to subscribers and reached a wide variety of Jews from all communities - fulfilling a similar function to True Torah Jews in the pre-internet age. We thank Hashem that this archive of Torah thought has now become available in pdf format, and we have made it accessible here.
