Palestine/Austria: celluloid pin of "HeHalutz" Zionist movement, circa. 1910's/early 1920's; iron and cellulite; not maker-marked (Shmuel Kretchmer?); size: 21.75mm; weight: 2.15g. Depicts idyllic labor-Zionist design by Shmuel Kretchmer (a pupil of the Bezalel School). Kretchmer producing many famous designs for Zionist movement; between the world wars he relocated his factory from Jerusalem to Vienna, and it may be that this pin was made abroad (in Austria).

Palestine/Switzerland: 20th Zionist Congress delegate's pin, (1937); nickel(?); manufactured by Moshe Moro of Jerusalem; size: 19.5mm x 22.5mm; weight: 5g. Square shield shaped pin depicting the official emblem of the congress (a Hebrew letter "Kaf" whose numerical value is "20"), with Star of David in right corner and Hebrew legend above "The Zionist Congress". On reverse, a safety pin and Moro's mark. 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.

Palestine/Yishuv: "She'erit HaPleita" enamel pin, circa. 1945-47; size: 20 x 26.5mm; weight: 5.2g. Two-toned enamel pin depicting golden Star of David set again a half-white and -blue background, with the legend in Hebrew and English above: "Eretz Israel / Palestine". Not maker-marked. This piece is being ascribed to the post war movement of Jewish Holocaust survivors / displaced persons (called in Hebrew "the surviving remnant") as the emblem design is similar to that used on flags and pins of the She'erit HaPleita movement, which had organized itself as a self-governing movement of DPs: a Star of David set against a background which is half blue and half white. This was probably done in order to avoid using the designed adopted by the Jewish community ('Yishuv') in Palestine and thereby angering the British authories in Germany, where these DPs were held. Nevertheless, the employment of a similar design was intended to signify the DPs' desire to emigrate to Palestine. Another hint that this pin is from the movement is the lack of Arabic in the pin's text - something that would have been included on emblems and insignia sanctioned by the British authorities in Palestine for public use.

Hungary: bronze token of 1st postwar (5th) convention of the religious-Zionist "Bachad" youth movement, in Budapest, 1947; size: 1.75 x 2.1mm; weight: 2.4g. Obverse bears legend in Hebrew: "[Hebrew month of] Tamuz [June-July, in the year] 5707 Fifth Convention Budapest"; on reverse the emblem of the "Bachad" youth movement. The token is designed as a tallion. "Bachad" - "Brit Chalutzim Datiim", the "Covenant of Religious [Zionist] Pioneers" was founded in German in 1928 to train and prepare religious-Zionist youths to emigrate to Palestine and establish communities there. The movement operated also in Austria, Britain Czechoslovakia, Holland, Hungary, and Romania, and in Poland (under the auspicies of the "Bnei Akiva" and "HaShomer HaDati" youth movements). 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.
