About this product
- DescriptionIn 1925 Abe (Abraham) Cahan, the strong and influential editor of the most important Jewish newspaper, Forward, and an outstanding leader of the Jewish Labor movement in the United States, visited Palestine in order to come to terms with the problem of Jewish mass migration from East Europe. During and following his trip Cahan published his impressions about the Jewish National Home. His publications stirred a public debate, which lasted almost a year, between the supporters and 'Bundist' antagonists to Palestine. Almost all major leaders in the Jewish labour movement participated in this debate, including Rogoff, Litvak, Panken, Pine, Charny-Vladek, Zivion and Morris Hillquit, one of the major leaders of the SP (the American Socialist Party). A major stronghold of the anti-Zionist Bund movement was, besides eastern Europe, in the United States. The perception of Jewish immigrants was that Palestine would t solve the problems and needs of the Jewish masses. The idea of establishing a Jewish state in Palestine was considered an illusion.
