“Tourism in Palestine. Come and see Erez-Israel.”

 

Long before there was a Palestinian people there was a land called Palestine. Zionist pioneers proudly encouraged the world to come visit.

 

         

“Palestine Airways.”

 

The legendary triumphs of Israel’s Air Force, the stunning innovations of Israel’s aircraft industry, and the success of El Al Airlines can all be traced to humble beginnings.

         

“Visit the zoo. Tel Aviv.”

 

Normalization was always an aim of the Zionist movement. What could be more normal than a visit to the zoo? The one in Tel Aviv was founded as early as 1938.

“Mt. Carmel - Mt. Zion. The Hebrew Ships. Haifa-Constanza-Haifa.”

 

The high quality of its home-grown produce opened the doors to international trade for Israel’s enterprising pioneers.

         

“Palestine Near East Exhibition and Fair. Tel Aviv.”

 


Decades in advance of its legendary achievements in hi-tech, Israel-in-the-making was already displaying its wares before the world.

         

“23rd Zionist Congress - Jerusalem. The first after the founding of the State. Buy your shekel.”

 

Instituted by Herzl, the Zionist shekel conferred voting rights in the World Zionist Organization.

“Zionist Organization Jubilee. The Jews who wish for it shall have their state.”

 


Herzl’s assertion after the First Zionist Congress that a Jewish state would arise within 50 years proved prophetic.

 

         

“Youth for hilltop communities. Keren Hayesod. Hebrew Youth Project.”

 


Settling the land has always been central to the Zionist ethos, even if the hoe in one hand demanded a gun in the other.

         

“Together for the sake of aliya and absorption.”

 


New immigrants have always been the lifeblood of the Jewish state. Their successful integration has always been a challenge – and a priority.

“Aliya Loan. Our future is in aliya – Assist in its absorption.”

 


Keeping the gates open for immigration has always been central to the Zionist vision, despite the financial burden involved.

         

“Hebrew Watermelon. Only with this symbol. Union for Local Goods. Agriculture Department.”

 


Zionism promoted the “conquest of labor” and the emergence of a productive, self-reliant society.

         

“Redeem the Land through Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael.”

 


Since founded by the WZO in 1901, the Jewish National Fund has proudly served its mission of land reclamation for the Jewish people.

“For the sake of peace – A war loan.”

 


The unremitting need to fight for Israel’s survival has not deterred its people from yearning for peace. The first war loan was imposed in 1949.

         

“Land, My Land. A gift from Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael (JNF), Jerusalem.”

 


Hebrew labor and farming were integral to the Zionist endeavor to redeem the Jewish people along with their land.

 

         

“With one hand he does his work, in the other he holds his weapon. Creativity – Struggle.”

 


Applying this biblical verse (Nehemia 4:11) to the present typifies the early Zionist ethos.

“Women workers and working mothers. Your taking part in the
elections will strengthen the movement of women workers and the entire labor union. Everyone to the voting booth!”


         

“Defend your homeland. Enlist.”

 

Herzl dreamed of a Jewish state requiring no army. The reality has been very different.
Still, the building and planting he envisioned has continued unabated.

         

“Jerusalem – A City Full of Atmosphere”.


Eternal capital of the Jewish people. More than just a place. Dreams fulfilled. Longings appeased. Promises to be kept. Anticipation of days to come.
