Article

Ahad Ha’am was born Asher Zvi Hirsh Ginsberg in 1856 in Skvira, Ukraine, to an affluent family that was religiously affiliated with the Hasidic movement, which emphasized communion with God and ecstatic practice. Like many of the Jewish intellectuals and modernizers of his generation, Ginsberg was self-taught in secular subjects and broke with religious practice in his teens.
