This article deals with the immigration of the French Jewish intellectuals to Israel after the Six Days war, and as a consequence of it. It studies mainly three legendary and well-known figures: André Neher, Éliane Amado-Lévy-Valensi and Léon Askénazi (Manitou) and these will help portray their followers who chose the same path, as Beno Gross, Théo Dreyfus, Lucien Lazare. It reconstructs their route in Israel and wonders about their radiance in that country compared to their influence in France. The argument is that, even if what is perceived on the whole as a failure, because the Israeli remained deaf to their questioning, we should temper this received idea by ensuring that what stands for the author as the transplantation of this school of thought from Paris to Bar Ilan had a real impact on the French and non-French religious Zionism and cannot be undervalued.
