The Road to National Leadership
Just when it seemed that Shertok was ready to follow the path designed for him by his closest friends and his party's leaders and plunge into the day-to-day activities of Ahdut Haavodah, he surprised his acquaintances in the party and the Yishuv. For he decided to make a pause in his budding political career and resume the academic studies that had been interrupted by the Great War, that is, by his deplorable military service and by his activities on behalf of the Yishuv in the wake of that war. Towards the end of 1920, notwithstanding a further severe deterioration of security in the Holy Land, and despite rearguard opposition to his studies still coming from Ahdut Haavodah leaders, such as Berl Katznelson, Yitzhak Tabenkin, and Shmuel Yavnieli, Shertok left family, party, and community for London. Those he left behind had no other choice but to respect his decision and try to help him in his new endeavour.
