With seven illustrations throughout, essays commemorating the Balfour Declaration, essays on the Jewish people and the need for Zionism, on the Nuremberg trial, and a translation of a letter from President Harry S. Truman in response to Ibn Saud on Palestine. “A turning point in the history of Cuban Zionism was the visit of Nathan Bistritski, the emissary of the Jewish National Fund to Latin America, who reached Cuba in 1943. Bistritski focused his efforts on the ideological education of all the Jewish sectors, and at the same time established diplomatic contacts among Cuban intellectuals and politicians in order to create favorable public opinion for the foundation of a Jewish State in Palestine after the war. The Comité Cubano Pro Palestina Hebrea (CCPPH) was the first among similar organizations in other Latin American countries, and it was supported by prominent figures, including members of the cabinet, the Congress, and the Senate, from the liberal center to the Communist left. The secretary of the CCPPH was the director of the Office of War Propaganda, Ofelia Domínguez y Navarro, a Communist lawyer who remained a faithful defender of the Zionist cause under Castro's regime. One of the most ardent supporters of the CCPPH was Senator Eduardo Chibás, who passed a resolution that was approved unanimously by the Cuban Senate on October 29, 1945, that 'it would view with satisfaction that Palestine, the historical homeland of the Hebrews, be constituted as soon as possible as a Hebrew independent and democratic state.

  21. Kalischer, Zevi Hirsch. דרישת ציון :‏ ‏לחברת ארץ נושבת DERISHAT TSIYON: LE-HEVRAT ERETS NOSHEVET. Thorn; Bi-Defus K. Dambrovski, 1866. Later Boards. 8vo. 45 leaves [i.e. 90 pages]. 21 cm. In Hebrew. Important proto-zionist tract advocating the establishment of a Jewish agricultural society in Palestine. From the library of Rabbi Edward I. Kiev, with his bookstamp on title page. Zevi Hirsch Kalischer (1795–1874) , was a “rabbi and harbinger of the Zionist idea. Born in Lissa (Leszno) , Posen district, Kalischer studied under the great scholars of his day, Jacob of Lissa (Lorberbaum) and Akiva Eger. In 1824 he settled in Thorn, where he lived until his death, rejecting invitations from many communities to serve as their rabbi. … Kalischer's book Derishat Ziyyon (1862) , which for many years served as the basic book to explain the idea of the return to Erez Israel to Orthodox groups (the book came out in a number of editions, was translated into German, and portions of it were translated into English and other languages) . In the book, Kalischer expounded at length his theory that redemption would come in two stages: the natural one, return to Erez Israel and labor – particularly agricultural – in the country, and the supernatural one to follow. The first stage would invigorate the yishuv and put it on a healthy economic foundation instead of its dependence upon donations from abroad. In his program he did not ignore the unstable security situation (this argument was used against him mainly by the rabbis in Eretz Israel) , and he devoted one paragraph especially to the necessity of appointing guards trained for war and police duty. He also envisioned the establishment of an agricultural school for the younger generation. The book had a great influence on, inter alia, Moses Hess, who included portions of it in German translation in his book Rome and Jerusalem. ” - EJ 2008. Subjects: Zionism. Jews - Restoration.

Born in Medzibezh, Podolia, Berdyczewski was the descendant of a line of Chasidic rabbis. … Berdyczewski wrote more than 150 Hebrew stories, many in Yiddish, and several in German. These stories deal with two central subjects: life in the Jewish towns of Eastern Europe in the last decades of the 19th century and the life of the Eastern European Jewish students in the cities of Central and Western Europe. … One of the most seminal figures in both modern Hebrew literature and Jewish thought, Berdyczewski exerted a subtle yet crucial influence upon many readers after the turn of the century because he embodied, both in his personality and in his writing, the painfully ambivalent attitudes toward both traditional Judaism and European culture shared by many Jewish intellectuals. Characteristically, Berdyczewski rebelled against his religious background, but could never completely reject it. ” - EJ 2008. Subjects: Berdichevsky, Micah Joseph, 1865-1921 - Bibliography.

Contains approximately 130 photographs of “rare images documenting Eretz-Israel during the final years of the British Mandate and Israel's struggle for survival during its first thirteen years. Goldman's privileged access - as a British Army member and later as a journalist befriended by Israeli leaders - offered a front-row perspective of personal moments at a time of sweeping, historic change. Goldman was a Hungarian-born photojournalist who fled from Budapest in 1940 with his wife Dina to escape Nazism. Goldman's simply composed, brightly lit shots represent more than a bystander's snapshots at a turning point for the Middle East. His images document events, families, leaders, struggles, and hopes, from the period of the British Mandate in Palestine and the arrival of Holocaust survivor immigrants, to the War of Independence, the formative years of kibbutz and agricultural life in the young state, and the development of Tel Aviv as a modern city. Highlights include unusual, personal portraits of Israel's earliest leaders: David Ben-Gurion, Israel's first prime minister, doing a headstand at Sharon Hotel beach in Herzliyah in September 1957 after a period of instruction by Dr. Moshe Feldenkreis; Chaim Weizmann, the nation's first president, and emerging figures destined to gain international fame - Golda Meir, Moshe Dayan, Menachem Begin, and a young lieutenant colonel commanding a paratrooper brigade in March 1957, today Israel's prime minister Ariel Sharon. ” - HUC.

He asserted that the tragedy of the Jews has 'an importance not only for Jewry but also for mankind, who, unless Palestine is given to the Jews, is faced with the menace of an international army of malcontents capable in their despair of destroying the world that bars their way to redemption. ' 'There should be one place in this wide world where we can live as we want to live, ' he declared. The hearing room in the Government House was crowded to overflowing for the address. After he had concluded, the commissioners, who are investigating recent disorders in Palestine, announced they would like to ask many questions and invited him to meet them again next week. Dr. Weizmann demanded fair application of the principle of economic absorptive capacity, which he said the Jews had accepted, so that Jews going to Palestine would not find the frontiers closed. ” - JTA November 27, 1936.

The paradox of Weizmann's dismissal was underlined by the election of his closest colleague, Sokolow, as president of the Jewish Agency.

Zionist essays and addresses. A lengthy essay in support of the East African scheme. Israel Zangwill (1864-1926) “attended most of the congresses at Basel, at first merely as a critic and onlooker, but later being drawn into the movement, of which he has become one of the leading spirits. He has written and lectured much on the subject, advocating in the United States (1904) and elsewhere the acceptance of the British government's offer of an autonomous settlement in British East Africa. On the refusal of the Seventh Zionist Congress to consider any further offer of the kind, Zangwill formed a separate body, the Jewish Territorial Organization, intended to obtain, preferentially from the British government, an adequate tract of country in which persecuted Jews can live their own life under Jewish conditions. ” - 1906 JE.

New York City; American Jewish Conference, 1943. Original Wraps. 12mo. 16 pages. 20 cm. First edition. Holocaust-era Statement of Withdrawal of the AJC from the American Jewish Conference. A contemporary news report described the withdrawal as such: “The withdrawal of the American Jewish Committee from the American Jewish Conference was announced here last night following a full-day session of its executive committee attended by seventy-five leading representatives of Jewish communities throughout the country. The session was presided over by Jacob Blaustein, chairman of the General Committee. Protesting this decision, three Zionist members of the American Jewish Committee resigned and telegraphed other members urging them to do likewise. … A statement on the position of the American Jewish Committee, presented by its president Joseph M. Proskauer, declared that 'the present demand for the eventual establishment of a Jewish Commonwealth in Palestine, made by the American Jewish Conference, and constituting one of its major decisions, as well as the subordination of other Jewish issues to the problem of the political structure of Palestine, are in such essential disagreement with the fundamental views of the American Jewish Committee that in the best interests of Jews in this and other countries, including Palestine, the Committee feels impelled to withdraw from the American Jewish Conference. ' The statement reaffirms the desire of the American Jewish Committee 'to utilize for the Jews of Europe the broadest opportunities which Palestine can offer. ' It assures that the Committee 'will apply its most diligent efforts to bring about the abrogation of the White Paper which closes the doors of Palestine to further Jewish immigration and restricts Jewish land purchase. ' At the same time it expresses the conviction that the problems of world Jewry cannot be solved by a single political panacea and that 'the salvation and rehabilitation of the stricken Jews of Europe cannot be achieved through Palestine alone and certainly not through overemphasis on the political constitution of Palestine. It can be achieved only by considering Palestine a part of the larger program which looks to the rehabilitation and resettlement of Jews throughout the world and the restoration of their equal rights. ” - JTA October 26, 1943.

And the Jews will either be men who have no religion at all, or men who have a religion of an anarchronistic, national, particularistic kind, which to the European and American Christian, will be a curiosity and nothing more, one tribal religion the more , survived and resuscitated. Nothing can well be imagined more disastrous from the Liberal Jewish point of view. ” (pg. 11) Subjects: Zionism. OCLC lists 9 copies worldwide. (NYPL, Univ. Of Chicago, Harvard, HUC, Univ.

(1st edition variant with Taylor as publisher). This novel is considered to be the first English language ‘Zionist Novel’ (it predates George Eliot’s ‘Daniel Deronda’ by thirty years) ; the story concerns the return of an English Jew (Alick) to the Holy Land; it binds together English and Jewish history. This was the last novel the author wrote. Charlotte Elizabeth Tonna (1790-1846) wrote on the plight of English factory workers, was well known in her time for her novels and her Orange-Protestant essays and poems, was passionate about gardening, a pioneer of deaf education, and also wrote children’s stories. In her later years she defended the rights of Judaism, and in her last three years was a close friend of Moses Montefiore, owing to her fundraising on behalf of the Jews of Mogador in 1844 (she raised the most money of anyone for the Jewish community in the besieged Moroccan coastal city), her public protest against the policies of Tsar Nicholas I towards Jews, and her 1844 letter to the Bishop of Jerusalem, entitled ‘Israel’s Ordinances. ’ “As Tonna’s health deteriorated rapidly, the Montefiores became devoted friends. When she set out on her final journey to Ramsgate from London, it was Montefiore who bade her farewell at the train station and handed her a basket of grapes.” (Pg. 215; ‘Moses Montefiore: Jewish Liberator, Imperial Hero’; by Abigail Green). Her work, "Days of Old, ’ by Charlotte Elizabeth (Mrs. Tonner)” was part of the sixth volume published by the American Jewish Publication Society in 1847 (Jewish Miscellany no. VI; which also includes two works by Isaac Leeser, “Rachel Levi, A Tale” and “The Jews and Their Religion”), two years after the society was founded by Isaac Leeser (EJ 1906; American Jewish Publication Society).

Under Soviet rule, during 1940 to 1941, the organization operated on the basis of underground cells and never had more than one hundred members. One of its main activities was the publication of a Hebrew Magazine, Nizoz (spark) which eventually became a monthly and also of other publications such as Shalhevet and the almanac of the Ma'apilim battalion. In the three years of its existence in the ghetto IBZ was headed, at various times, by Yitzhak Shapira, Avraham Melamed, and Aryeh Cohen.

Naphtali Herz Imber (1856–1909) , “poet and author of 'Ha-Tikvah' ('The Hope') , the Zionist and later the Israel national anthem. He was born in Galicia where he received an intensive traditional but no secular education. Imber went to Palestine with Laurence Oliphant, a Christian Zionist whom he met in Constantinople in 1882 and whom he served as secretary and adviser on Jewish affairs in Palestine (1882–88) . In 1888, he returned to Europe but soon his restless nature took him back to the East and he wandered as far as Bombay. In India, as in Palestine, he was wooed by missionaries and was later accused of apostasy. Even Israel Zangwill, with whom he became friendly in London, believed that Imber converted to Christianity in order to escape starvation. Imber inspired the character of Melchizedek in Zangwill's novel Children of the Ghetto. In 1892 he went to the United States and traveled throughout the land. After a brief visit to London, he returned to America where he spent the rest of his life in squalor, misery, and alcoholism. Fortunately, the poet again found a patron; this time in the person of Judge Mayer Sulzberger, who gave him a monthly subvention. Imber's colorful personality attracted Amanda Katie, a Protestant physician of high intellect and of unusual charm. She converted to Judaism and married him, but after a brief interval of happiness, their marriage was dissolved. Tikvatenu (later changed to Ha-Tikvah) appeared in his first volume of poems Barkai ('Dawn') and is dated 'Jerusalem 1884.' In his second volume of poems, Barkai he-Hadash ('The New Dawn') , published in 1900 by his devoted brother Shemaryahu, there was a poem dedicated to his wife ('Shir ha-Shirim') . Imber published part of his biography in the Jewish Standard (London) , and it was republished by G. Yardeni-Agmon in D. Carpi (ed. ) , Ha-Hiyyonut (1970) , 357–462. In 1905, his Hebrew translation of Fitzgerald's Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam was published under the title Ha-Kos ('The Cup') . Imber also translated some of his own poems into English and wrote several tracts in English on talmudic literature. ” EJ 2008. Subjects: Jewish legends. Jews – Folklore.

First edition. In Hebrew. Lyrics (romanized) --also printed as vocalized text in Hebrew script. Anthology of 230 zionist songs. Includes unacc. Melodies. Published by the Yudisher Ferlag of Berlin, under the auspices of Hechalutz and Maccabi World Union. “Jakob Schönberg was born in Fürth, Bavaria on September 8, 1900. His father, David Schönberg, was chazzan (cantor) at the Claus-Synagoge in Fürth... Schönberg apparently earned his living during Germany's Weimar Republic (1919-1933) as a pianist, music critic, conductor and composer. He wrote articles for the Nürnberger Zeitung and served as a musical consultant for Bavarian Radio in Munich. Bavarian Radio performed some of his orchestral compositions. He also worked in films as a "musical conductor and illustrator" and some of his film music was published by Schott's Söhne, Mainz, and Hawkes and Son, London. Schönberg was interested in composing instrumental music — especially orchestral. His first orchestral work, Prelude Symphonique, premiered in 1923... His style of composition took a decidedly Jewish turn after the Nazis took power in 1933, and Jewish musicians could no longer be employed by Germany's state-supported cultural institutions. In 1934 Schönberg transcribed the folk songs and dance tunes of several halutzim (pioneers) visiting Germany from Palestine. The following year he published Shire Erets Yisrael (Songs of the Land of Israel) , an anthology containing 230 Hebrew songs (Berlin: Jüdischer Verlag, 1935) . From this time until, at least, when he left Germany, these Israeli melodies would figure prominently in Schönberg's work. He set several of them for voice with piano and voice with flute and viola. His Suite für Orchester, 3 Sätze utilizes a Horra melody from the anthology. Schönberg's orchestral Horras appear to have been extremely popular in Nazi Germany, and were performed numerous times by the Jüdischer Kulturbünde between 1936 and 1938, in both Berlin and Frankfurt-am-Main” (Jakob Schonberg Collection; JTSA) .

A second edition was published by Metro music in 1927. “Bialik composed his sea poems ('Yam lider') in Yiddish in 1908 and published them in a Zionist-oriented anthology just before his first visit to Eretz Yisrael in 1909. The small cycle of three pseudo-naive poems was defined by the poet as a translation from the prominent medieval poet Rabbi Yehuda Halevi. However, this cycle of poems is, in fact, a free adaptation of diverse motifs from Halevi, imbued with contemporary colours and revealing Bialik's intimate secrets. … Bialik wrote these Zionist poems ('Yam lider') in the language of the Jewish masses, telling his ideological adversaries in an indirect and subtle way that if he turns to the writing of poems in Yiddish, it is merely for ideological purposes, and not because he agrees with their credo. Indeed, the role of these poems in many Zionist circles has been long acknowledged. ” (Khulyot; Journal of Yiddish Research; No. 8 Winter 2003) Subjects: Songs, Yiddish - United States.

With 190 Illustrations. On cover: "... In Basel habe ich den Judenstaat gegründet ... In Basel I have founded the jewish state”. “A mosaic of concise and generously illustrated articles introduces the reader to the First Zionist Congress, the circumstances leading up to it, and its consequences. Succinct biographical sketches highlight known and lesser-known Jewish and Zionist personalities and provide fascinating insights into the everyday life of Jewish communities. Reflecting the structure of the exhibition, the publication first examines the origins of Zionism as a response to the changing patterns of life for European Jews in the last century. The First Zionist Congress in Basel and its resolutions, the so-called ‘Baseler Programm’, are the focus of the next chapter. The ramifications of the congress up to the foundation of the State of Israel are explored in detail and a variety of issues such as the evolving fractions of the Zionist movement, the role of women, relationships with the Arabic-Palestinian inhabitants and the influence of the Shoa receive special attention. A lively discussion of the relevance of Zionism today concludes the publication. A team of historians from the University of Basel has put together a publication which serves both as a guide to the exhibition and a valuable source for further study. It is strongly recommended to anybody interested in contemporary history, Jewish history, or the history and reception of Zionism as well as to all those seeking to form their own opinions about an influential social movement of our century. ” - Publishers Description.

  325. Zangwill, Israel. THE PROBLEM OF THE JEWISH RACE. New York; The Judaen Publishing Company, [1910?]. Original wrappers. 12mo. 20 + [1] pages. 18 cm. First Edition. An early Zionist piece describing the history of Jews throughout the world and setting forward the suggestion that the creation of a Jewish State or Jewish Homeland would “establish in the heart of the Old World a bridge of civilization between the East and the West and symbol of hope for the future of mankind. ” (pg. [21]) The Judaen Publishing Company, established in New York at the beginning of the 20th century, tasked itself with publishing pamphlets and other texts “expressive of the new Jewish revival and dealing with the questions which confront our people. ” Zangwill (1864-1926) was an author and playwrite whose work “earned him the nickname ‘the Dickens of the Ghetto. ’ He wrote a very influential novel Children of the Ghetto: A Study of a Peculiar People (1892) . The use of the metaphorical phrase ‘melting pot’ to describe American absorption of immigrants was popularised by Zangwill's play The Melting Pot, a hit in the United States in 1909-10. The play received its most recent production at New York's Metropolitan Playhouse in March 2006…. In 1912 Zangwill received a letter from [former presidentTheodore] Roosevelt in which Roosevelt wrote of the Melting Pot ‘That particular play I shall always count among the very strong and real influences upon my thought and my life’ (Wikipedia 2014) .
