The Haskala movement, was a Jewish movement of the 18th and 19th centuries which sought to implement changes in Jewish life and society. Often discussed yet just as often misunderstood, it is intriguing as it is confusing. Was the haskala the Jewish Enlightenment? When was this movement? Where did it take place? Can it even be classified as a 'movement'? How so? Who were its primary personalities? How did they impact Jewish life? Is the rise of Jewish nationalism at the end of the 19th century related to haskala movement of the earlier decades? When did the haskala end? If there is one unifying characteristic of this very dispersed 'movement', it is the use of the written word as the primary mechanism and tool to get their message across. The rise in maskilic literature took the form of newspapers, journals, poetry, novels, short stories and satire. The haskala movement sought to bring change to Jewish life in the modern world, and it played a significant role in the Jewish history of the 19th century.
