From the pogroms of czarist Russia to the shores of Palestine, Leo Pinsker, Max Nordau, Theodor Herzl, Israel Zangwill and Ze'ev Jabotinsky dreamed, advocated, hoped and devoted themselves to the Zionist cause. All passed from the scene before the watershed moment on May 14, 1948, when Israel was born.
