Reynolds Hahamovitch : The Storm of Revolution – Jewish Anarchists in New York City and the 1905 Russian Revolution

The 1905 Russian revolution was heralded as the first social revolution. It failed and brought
massive pogroms in its wake, leaving some 3000 Russian Jews dead. Historians have
demonstrated that the revolution was a major catalyst for Jewish nationalism in Eastern Europe,
leading to the rise of Zionism, Bundism, and other Jewish movements as powerful political
forces in Eastern Europe. The revolution’s impact on Jewish anarchism has only barely been
touched by scholars, as Jewish anarchists have typically been seen as peripheral to Jewish
politics. Jewish anarchists were avid opponents of nationalism before 1905, but they too were
transformed by the nationalist turn after the revolution. Though initially many prominent Jewish
anarchists viewed the pogroms as unimportant, the sheer amount of anti-Jewish violence
caused them to recant. The failure of the revolution caused a deep identity crisis within the
Jewish anarchist movement brought what were once the pariahs of the Jewish street back into
the Jewish fold. The great social revolution was meant to sweep across the whole world, and its
revolutionary apostles were no less transnational. This shift that the Jewish anarchist movement
underwent in America demonstrates the influence that the Russian homeland held over Jewish
migrants separated from it by thousands of miles and even several generations. Though the first
Russian revolution failed it only made American Jewish anarchists more determined to bring
about their own. (Show less)
