Hebrew 'Tarbut Ivrit - Hungary' maker-marked artistic Judaica pin 1910s
25570090
Hungary: "Hebrew Culture - Hungary" enamel and metal pin, circa. 1910s; designed by Y. Sh.; size: 32.25 x 31.75mm; weight: 8.05g. Oval shaped badge in blue & white enamel, with Hebrew words "Hebrew" & "Culture" on white [Ten Commandment] Tablet devices & silver rays emitting forth & "Hungaria" in exergue; designer's Hebrew initials at left. Little information exists, but "Tarbut Ivrit" as a teaching method was one of total immersion in Hebrew & connection to a cultural icon (period Zionist youth movements) where Hebrew instruction imbued with romantic aura & sense of moral mission, adapting language of Bible for modern life. Here, pin probably connected to activities of Eliyahu Blank, József Patai & Dr. Yehuda Spiegel (perhaps the designer's initials are his).

American Jewish Day -Century of Progress exhibition Judaica medal, 1933 by Carmi
23970160
US: "Jewish Day - Century of Progress" exhibition medal, Chicago, 1933; by A. Carmi(?); struck in brass; weight: 10.9g; size: 32mm. Obverse depicts Star of David with Hebrew date for year "5693"; artist's name lightly engraved between the swirls of the design; on reverse image of Moses bearing the Tablets descending Mount Sinai and legend in Hebrew "And Moses Descended Unto the People". The "Jewish Day" is recorded by some observers as "the greatest Jewish spectacle ever staged in Chicago", and it took place on July 3, 1933, at Soldier Field, before more than 125,000 people. It was sponsored by the Jewish Agency for Palestine (the quasi-governmental authority of the Jewish community in Palestine), with the President of the Zionist Congress, Dr. Chaim Weizmann, specially invited as the keynote speaker. The musical-theatrical pageant "The Romance of A People" was the culminating event of the day (which took five years to plan) which commemorated Jewish contributions to the city of Chicago since its founding in 1833. The "Jewish Day" was one of around 24 such days planned by the Fair Committee to commemorate the contributions of various nationalities which comprised the city of Chicago - as the Jews identified themselves closely with Palestine, the Jewish Agency was involved in the organizations and hence the themes of the event and this token. In AU with some surface residue from coin holder.

Romanian Jsac Focsaner Zionist coffee and tea house in Bucuresci 1 Leu token
27770207
Romania, Bucuresci (Hunedoara County, Transylvania) "Jsak [Isaac] Focşaner" Zionist coffee and tea house token for 1 Leu (ND), circa. early 1920's; struck in copper-nickel; no maker marks; weight: 4.1g; size: 25.5mm. Obverse bears narrowed Star of David with Hebrew word "Zion" in center, with Romanian legend around edge "Jsak Focşaner * Bucuresci *"; on reverse "1 Leu" in center. Medallic rotated strike; beeded edge on obverse and reverse. In VF with a slight clip missing from the top left - possibly manufactured that way. Schaffer BUC-651, rarity 5 (extreme rarity: 6-15pc) p.77.

Transylvania came under Romanian control following the Versailles treaty of 1920 (hence the estimated dating of this token); the city of Bucuresci (not to be confused with Bucuresti - Bucharest, the capital but spelled - oddly - on the token without the accented "ş") is located in Hunedoara country, which, according to Jewish history sources, was part of a region populated by Reform Jews desiring integration and assimilation, as opposed to the more Orthodox Jews in the rest of Romania who identified more with Zionism and emigration.

A possible reason for the word "Zion" appearing on this token lies with the proprietor's name, "Focsaner" - "of the city of Focşani": during the period of the first "Aliya" (immigration wave to Palestine of religious Jews, 1860-1903 - many sources even date the first Aliya from 1881), as a result of the influence of this unorganized movement, on 30-31 December 1881, the First Congress of all Zionist Unions in Romania for the promotion of settlement in Eretz Israel (Palestine) was held in the west Romanian city of Focşani. This congress, held 16 years before Dr. Theodore Herzl's First "World Zionist Organization" Congress in Basel (1897), had a major influence on Romanian Jews, and the coffee house proprietor, probably eschewing the significance of that event took the city's name as his own surname and promoted Zionism through his business work in the more Reform region of Hunedoara.

The conference commemorated by this medal is described in detail in a book about it by The Zionist Library press. A unique historical artifact.

Rishon LeZion token with bust of Herzl, probably commemorating his visit, 1898
21470242
Palestine (Russia?): Rishon LeZion settlement/Theodore Herzl commemorative token, circa. 1898; bronze; not maker-marked; size: 26mm x 27mm; weight: 6.55g. Obverse: view of Rishon LeZion settlement with legend (Yeshayahu, ch. 41) "The first to Zion ['Rishon LeZion'] here they are, and to Jerusalem a portent I shall give" & "Colonia Rishon LeZion" at base; Hebrew date "1882" in exergue. A rare (3rd) variant of these Rishon LeZion tallions: appears to commemorate Herzl's visit there on 26 Oct. 1898, whose arrival was met with excitement and pride, per winery director David Yudilovich's diary: "And here approached me a fellow countryman... and presents: Dr. Herzl. It was as if I froze, I was seized by trembling and fear. A tremor passed through my body. I didn't know what to do with myself. The whole group entered the large hall. And I stand and am astonished: Herzl is in Eretz Israel?! Herzl is here?! Herzl is here?! And in the official's [of Rothschild] house?!..." Herzl stayed overnight, visiting the winery, the house of Rothschild's official, and being entertained by Rishon LeZion's symphony orchestra. Spelling mistakes in the text suggest foreign manufacture. This piece is missing the tallion but bears better details than another which sold for $250 in Auction 6. Rare.

A unique momento from the bedrock of ideological Zionism.

Chilean Judaica 20th anniversary commemoration medal of Zionist Federation 1939
19470248
Chile: 20th anniversary commemorative medal of the Zionist Federation ("Federación Sionista de Chile"), 1939; struck in aluminum/alloy; maker-marked "JP"; size (medal only): 28mm; weight: 9.8g. Obverse bears a Star of David at center, with Spanish legend above and below "XX Aniversario" and "Fed. Sionista de Chile". Reverse bears a raised hand drawn out of a Hebrew letter "Kaf" (which means "20" when used as a digit; the 20th Zionist Congress of 1937 used the letter "Kaf" as well in its emblem) with Hebrew legend below "If I Forget Thee O Jerusalem" and the dates "1919 1939" above; minter/marker's mark is at base, near edge. The obverse of the medal may be a reused planchet as traces of the design can still be seen, though upside down. This example has a vertical rosette device at the base of the wreath; another variety with a different maker's mark has a horizontal rosette device instead - perhaps two different engravers who knew how to design Hebrew letters. Zionist activity in Chile increased after the First World War party because of Jewish immigration caused by the Russian revolution and also because of the Balfour Declaration (of 1917): by 1919 a "Congress of Chilean Jewry" of representatives from 13 cities convened in order to centralize the Jewish community, and here the "Federacion Sionista de Chile" was established and became the main organization of Chilean Jewry. In VF-EF; seldomly encountered with a ribbon.

Austrian Judaica 14th Zionist Congress delegate's pin, 1925 by M. Hammer
19870250
Austria: 14th Zionist Congress delegate's pin, 1925; bronze and enamel; by M. Hammer of Vienna; size: 28mm; weight: 6g. Round emblem with stylized Hebrew letters "Yud" and "Daled" whose numerical values are "14", with legend in Hebrew around edge, "The 14th Zionist Congress Vienna 5685"; pieces of the enamel are missing. On reverse the soldiered pin is broken off; manufacturer's mark is visible. The 14th Zionist Congress took place in Vienna in the second half of August 1925 under the chairmanship of Nahum Sokolov, during the 4th "Aliya" (immigration wave to Palestine), which was fuelled less by ideology and more by exigency: most of the immigrants came from the economy weak Eastern Europe and Poland, and the United States imposed severe immigration restrictions. This immigration was was characterized by the import of financial means and individual businesses/economic resources into Palestine: the Congress debated the merits and vices of realizing the establishment of a Jewish national home through private enterprise rather than socialist labor (which characterized the three previous immigration waves). This was also the first Congress attended by the [right-wing] Revisionists, who demanded a more proactive policy by the Zionist movement.

Polish Judaica HaShomer HaLeumi Zionist youth movement 1st congress pass 1930
31070251
Poland: "HaShomer HaLeumi" ("National Guardsman") Zionist youth movement "First Legislative Congress" pass, 1930; size: 34.5mm; weight: 1.05g. Round paper token-disk with metal sides; printed on one side, in Hebrew: "The National Guardsman | First Legislative Congress | Warsaw 2nd-3rd [month of] Tevet 5690".

The "HaShomer HaLeumi" was a Zionist youth/scouting movement founded in 1929 by Dr. Reuben Ben-Shem (Feldschue), in Plock, Poland, under the auspicies of the "General Zionists" political movement. As opposed to the socialist-oriented "Labor Zionist" movement and its affiliated youth movement "HaShomer HaTzair" ("The Young Guard"), the "HaShomer HaLeumi" was founded as a semi-rightwing/liberal alternative for Jewish youth - one of several similar revisionist-Zionist leaning movements popular in Poland at that time ("Betar" being one of them).

Different from some, though not all Zionist youth-scout movements, the National Guardsman focused on giving Jewish youth very practical preparations for emigrating to Palestine: nightly Hebrew courses, establishment of "kibbutzim" (Zionist agricultural communal settlements which originated in Palestine) in Poland, scouting skills and scout leader training. In some autobiographies former members emphasize how their knowledge of Hebrew in pre-war Poland gave them a feeling of superiority and self-confidence over their Jewish peers (earning them in turn their peers' envy). The organization was widespread in Poland and many of its members emigated to Palestine in the period of the "5th Aliya" (immigration wave) of 1929-1939. One of the most famous former members of this organization was Moshe Kol (Kolodny), a future minister in the Israeli government and a signatory on her Declaration of Independence.

The Legislative Congress commemorated on this token began on the last day of the Chanukka holiday, on 3-4 January 1930, and although little is documented about the Congress, perhaps as a result of it, in 1931 the "HaShomer HaLeumi" movement amalgamated with other Jewish Zionist scouting organizations and in 1931 became known as "HaNoar HaTzioni" ("The Zionist Youth"), in time part of an umbrella organization founded by Yitzhak Steiger in Galicia and Poland called "The Hebrew Youth Union" ("Histadrut HaNoar HaIvri"). Feldschu had an active history: he was an early member of the Revisionist movement in Poland (1927) and founder of the famous Polish Betar youth wing, before breaking away and founding the National Guardsman; he was tapped to have set out as a representative of his movement, on foot, from Poland to Palestine to protest British restrictions on Jewish immmigration; he attended 4 Zionist Congresses and chronicled the events of the Warsaw Ghetto.

The 20th Zionist Congress took place in Zurich throughout most of August 1937, under the leadership of Menachem Ussishkin (the head of the Jewish National Fund): against the backdrop of the 1936-39 Arab Revolt in Palestine, it debated the position of the Zionist movement with regard to the 1936 Peel Commission's study to establish the practicality of dividing Palestine into separate Jewish and Arab states - Ussishkin's faction was opposed, though the faction represented by Chaim Weizmann and David Ben-Gurion supported such a partition. In the end, the Congress rejected specific borders recommended by the Commission but permitted its executive to negotiate over them.

The movement was established on the basis of another movement called "Tzeirey Mizrachi" ("Mizrachi Youth" - Mizrachi being an existing religious political party) to serve as an umbrella organization for all the religious-Zionist youth movements in Germany, and initially known as "HaChalutz HaMizrachi" before being renamed "Bachad".

The reknowned scientist and thinker, Yeshayahu Leibowitz, prepared the educational program of the movement. In 1937 "Bachad" together with other religious youth movements founded the "Kibbutz HaDati" settlement movement within whose framework it established the Kibbutz 'Tirat Tzvi'. The movement's last pre-war convention was its 4th, in 1934 in Berlin, and this tallion commemorates their 5th convention, in Budapest prior to (and on the eve of) Israel's establishment, with strict immigration quotas and a British sea-blockade on Palestine in place.

Israeli 23rd Zionist Congress bronze hollow-backed pin, 1951
30470256
Israel: 23rd Zionist Congress pin, (1951); bronze; not maker-marked; size: 28.5mm; weight: 3.15g. Hollow-backed badge with safety pin on reverse, with stylized but generic emblem of the Congress - a Menorah - flanked by the Hebrew letters "Kaf" and "Gimmel" (for "23") and the legend in Hebrew around edge, "The Zionist Congress Jerusalem". The 23rd Zionist Congress was only the second one held after the Second World War, and also the first ever held in Israel, in August 1951. To commemorate the accomplishment of the Congress's original aim (the "Basel program" - the establishment of a Jewish state in Israel by political means), the Congress opened at the site of Herzl's grave in Jerusalem (his body was re-interred there in 1949). The Congress therefore focused on the new goals of the Zionist movement in light of Israel's establishment and also called upon the Israeli parliament (the "Knesset") to recognize the World Zionist Organization as the representative body of all Jews in matters related to the connection between diaspora Jewry and the Jewish State. Pins from this Congress and the next exist as both hollow-backed and solid versions: given the novelty of the Congresses being held then in Israel it may be that the hollow-backed types were more widely available, either as souvenirs to the public or for wear by Congress behind-the-scenes staffers and assistants.

Israeli 24th Zionist Congress nickel tallion, 1956
30570257
Israel: 24th Zionist Congress tallion, (1956); nickel(?); not maker-marked, but may be by Kretchmer; size: 28.5mm x 33mm; weight: 12.45g. Uniface tallion bearing similar design to that of the 23rd Congress - a stylized Menorah flanked by the Hebrew letters whose numerical value is "24" and the legend "The Zionist Congress Jerusalem". The 24th Zionist Congress was held in Jerusalem between April-May 1956, under the chairmanship of Nahum Goldman - the Congress had lacked a chairman since Chaim Weizmann resigned in 1946, and it took place against an atmosphere of military insecurity around Israel's borders. The Congress discussed matters of immigration to Israel and immigrant absorption, settlements and fundraising; a proposal to eliminate party divisions within the Zionist movement and instead have regional representation was rejected. Congress emblems from this period are found as hollow-back and solid backed pins (or tallions); given the relative expense of the solid-backed emblems (particularly then, during the period of austerity - the "Tzena"), it's possible that these solid-backed badges were issued to actual delegates of the Congress.
