Lacking local intelligentsia in Palestine, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem had to be founded primarily on the strength of intellectuals and scholars who acquired their education in Europe, especially in the German-speaking realm. By means of a microhistorical study, I intend to explore the process of the adjustment of the German tradition of knowledge within the framework of the building of the Jewish nation in Palestine.
