His design studio doubled as a kind of front for SHA'I, the Haganah's secret service…. Wallish was responsible for the calligraphy and design of the scroll for Israel's Declaration of Independence. …In addition, Walisch handled the preparation of the exhibit hall in which the State's Independence was announced. …In 1948, too, Wallish took the lead in designing Israel's first postage stamps. He chose a design based on ancient coins, found in archaeological research on the First Jewish-Roman War and the Bar Kochba Revolt…. Wallish continued to be a leading designer of Israeli stamps…. Israel's first coins were designed from a proposal submitted by Israel Numismatic Society proposal, put together with Leo Kadman, Hanan Pavel, and Wallish.

'Hanuka 5666', on page [8], is how the printed version appears. Lazarus in her article discusses the year of massive bloodletting and Jewish martyrs (1905), and celebrates the new heroic Maccabaean Spirit and Jewish nationalism. Josephine Lazarus (1846-1910) "was the best known of the poet Emma Lazarus's five sisters... Her first published piece was a memorial essay on Emma, followed by a series of literary biographies of contemporary women writers. In 1893, she was one of the few Jewish women invited to speak at the Congress of Religions at the World Columbian Exposition in Chicago. Like the other Jewish speakers at the Congress, Lazarus emphasized the spiritual identity of Judaism, introducing her vision of combining the truths of Judaism and Christianity in a nonsectarian ethical monotheism. She further refined her ideology in 'The Spirit of Judaism, ' published in 1895... Lazarus's life and work provide important insights into a pattern of Jewish identification and assimilation in late nineteenth-century America... Josephine Lazarus's legacy is of a woman yearning for a Judaism that satisfies both the intellect and the spirit, a Judaism that can connect the past with the present and the future. Josephine Lazarus died on February 3, 1910. " (Sue Levi Elwell, Jewish Women's Archive, 2014). Subjects: American literature - Women authors. OCLC lists one copy of the Souvenir Program (NYPL).

The high points of Dr. Weizmann’s testimony, which was frequently interrupted by questions from the visibly interested committee members, were: 1. Although he favors the eventual establishment of a Jewish state in Palestine, when the Jews are in a majority, he does not demand the establishment of such a state immediately, but wants maximum Jewish immigration. 2. He is not interested in the 'trappings' of a Jewish state, but wants state power for Jews to develop the country, and the immediate abolition of the White paper. 3. He wants peace with the Arabs and is willing to meet with them at any time to discuss the future of the country. 4. He does not believe that there is any future in Europe for most of that continent’s Jews. 5. He revealed that Winston Churchill, when Prime Minister, promised that when the war ended, he would try to convince the U. S. Government to go along with Zionist aspirations. 6. He is 'profoundly opposed' to violence and would do everything in his power to curb it. ” - JTA, 'Weizmann Outlines His Views on Palestine at Hearings of Anglo-american Committee', March 10, 1946.

When a majority of the delegates refused a vote of confidence to Brandeis' position, he resigned from any position of responsibility, although not from membership in the organization. In this action he was joined by his principal supporters, including Julian W. Mack, Rabbi Stephen S. Wise, Felix Frankfurter, and Robert Szold. " - 2008 EJ. Subjects: Zionism - United States.

And expanding its activities, and calling on the Organization to take the load in a campaign to democratize Jewish community life in this country. The major points of the program are: 1. The creation of a demission on policy to be named by the Z. O. A. President through which all policy questions are to be cleared before they come up for final decision before the duly authorized bodies of the Zionist organization. 2. The sending to Israel of a Zionist delegation of 50 outstanding American businessmen from various parts of the country to study the whole problem of private investment in Israel. 3. The establishment of a national chaluziuth commission to organize and supervise ZOA projects of planned chalutziuth. 4. The convening of a conference on democratization of the Jewish community to which are to be invited all Jewish groups within and without the Zionist movement. ” - JTA, 'Browdy Presents Four-point Program to Z.

  152. Braudes, R. A. שירים עתיקים, ספור SHIRIM 'ATIKIM, SIPUR. Krakow (Poland); Druck Und Verlag Von Josef Fischer, 1903. Period Cloth. 8vo. 99 pages. 23 cm. First complete edition. In Hebrew. Old Songs. The “biographical novel Shirim Attikim ('Old Songs'), the finished version of which appeared posthumously in Cracow in 1903.” - EJ 2008. Selections first appeared in Ru'ah ha-Zeman: “From 1891 to 1893 Braudes resided in Cracow, editing a weekly which appeared under the names Ha-Zeman and Ru'ah ha-Zeman in alternate weeks, to avoid paying the duty levied on a weekly. ” - EJ 2008. Reuben Asher Braudes (1850–1902), “Hebrew author. Active in various East European cities, including Vilna (his place of birth), Lvov, Kraków, Bucharest, and Odessa, and ultimately (after 1896) in Vienna, Re’uven Braudes edited Hebrew and Yiddish periodicals and wrote essays and articles, but is best known as the author of short stories and novels that earned him a reputation as one of the outstanding maskilic Hebrew writers of nineteenth-century Eastern Europe. … Shirim ‘atikim (Old Songs; 1890–1891) raises [the] dilemma: Palestine or America? The book’s heroes, Naftali and Shim‘on, have opposing answers to this question. Naftali, a maskil of the old school, fears that 'religion' will control 'life' in the Holy Land and prefers America, which he considers the symbol of freedom and tolerance. However, the American Dream fails him; in the end he chooses to live in Palestine, but it is too late. ” - Yivo Encyclopedia.

First brochure for the first Israel Bond Issuance, announcing the amount and bond types available, etc. Contains several charts and graphs discussing Israel's import/export amounts, public debt, government expenditures, military expenditures, etc. With one map of Israel. “The idea to float bonds issued by Israel's government was conceived by Israel's first prime minister, David Ben-Gurion, in the aftermath of Israel's War of Independence. The war had taken a terrible toll in casualties (more than 1% of the country's population was killed), and the nation's fledgling economy was devastated. Compounding the dire situation was the fact that Israel faced economic demands unique to the new state, most especially the arrival of hundreds of thousands of immigrants. In Israel's early years, immigrants generally fell into two categories: Holocaust survivors and Jewish refugees from Arab countries, ” who poured in as the British Blockade ended and Middle Eastern Jews fled or were expelled from their home countries. “Short on money, the country suffered food shortages and rationing, and the new arrivals had to be housed in primitive conditions. With his country financially overwhelmed, Ben-Gurion turned to the Diaspora community for help. In September 1950, he convened a meeting of American Jewish leaders at Jerusalem's King David Hotel, where he proposed issuing bonds to help provide Israel with a more secure economic foundation. Ben-Gurion's goals were two-fold: to obtain millions of dollars in funding for immigrant absorption and the construction of national infrastructure, and to engage Diaspora Jewry as active partners in building the new Jewish state. The American Jewish leaders supported Ben-Gurion's plan and, the following spring, the prime minister traveled to New York to help launch the inaugural Independence Issue at a gala Madison Square Garden ceremony…. Final results for 1951 more than doubled projections, exceeding $52 million” (Wikipedia, 2015). Subjects: Finance - Israel.

"[I]n 1948 the Zionist dream of an independent State of Israel miraculously came to pass, and one of the first things the settlers did when they came back to their land was to plant trees and develop moshavim (collective farms). Reforesting the land by planting trees during Tu B'Shevat eventually became national custom. Today Israeli schoolchildren plant trees in special ceremonies (neti'at etzim). And people living the Disapora often donate money to plant trees in Israel through the services of the Jewish National Fund. Tu B'Shevat therefore resembles an 'Israeli Arbor Day' when trees are planted and the rebirth of the Jewish homeland is celebrated" (John Parsons, 2015). Subjects: Tu bi-Shevat - Study and teaching.

  294. דער יוד DER YUD [FULL RUN, VOL. 3, 1901]. Cracow; Hevrah "ahiasaf", 1901. Period Cloth. 4to. [approximately 16 pages per issue]. 30 cm. In Yiddish. Weekly periodical. Contains fifty-two issues. Full run for volume three of Der Yud: "Yiddish Zionist periodical. Launched by the Hebrew publishing company Ahi'asaf in January 1899 to promote the political and cultural program of the newly founded Zionist Organization, Der yud (The Jew; pronounced Der yid) was edited in Warsaw but published in Kraków to avoid tsarist censorship. Under editor Yehoshu 'a Hana (Yoshue Khone) Ravnitski, it appeared bimonthly, then became a weekly by mid-November of that year, edited by Yoysef Lurie. The periodical served an appreciative readership in the absence of a Yiddish daily press and stopped publication in December 1902 when the Russian censor granted long-sought permission to Saul Ginsburg to start up the Yiddish daily Der fraynd. The editorial policy of providing a place where Yiddish writers 'could speak not only about, but with the people ' made Der yud a catalyst for the development of modern Yiddish literature. It featured work by the best-known Yiddish authors, including poems by Shimen Shmuel Frug, stories by Sholem Aleichem including parts of Tevye der milkhiker (Tevye the Dairyman), neo-Hasidic tales by Y. L. Peretz, the first Yiddish poems by Hayim Nahman Bialik, and the fictional autobiography of Sholem Yankev Abramovitsh (Mendele Moykher-Sforim). Despite the outspoken opposition of the leading Hebraist, Ahad Ha-Am, to the development of a modern literature in Yiddish, a number of Hebrew writers wrote for Der yud, including Mosheh Leib Lilienblum, David Frishman, and Yehudah Steinberg. Der yud also published the first fruits of young writers who had earlier found no place for their work. One of the few contemporary women writers of fiction, Rokhl Brokhes, made her debut in Der yud, as did the poet-writer Avrom Reyzen, and the prose writers Sholem Asch and Hersh Dovid Nomberg. Der yud also published the folk poet Mark Varshavski, the critic Bal-Makhshoves (Isidor Eliashev), the playwright Mark Arnshteyn, and the later spokesman of Polish Zionism, Yitshak Grünbaum. Normally a tabloid of 16 pages, with holiday supplements, Der yud reported mostly on the Russian Pale of Settlement, with summaries of world news and reports from Argentina, America, England, and Palestine. Special coverage was devoted to Zionist congresses and to debates within the Zionist movement. A liberal editorial policy permitted challenges to the paper within its pages. Correspondents in cities and towns throughout Russia pioneered an early form of Yiddish journalism. Feuilletons and personal columns often blurred the boundaries between fiction and reportage. The paper tried to strike a balance between belletristic literature and political commentary. " - YIVO Encyclopedia. Subjects: Jews - Poland - Krakow - Periodicals. Jews. Periodicals.
