United States, "League for Religious Labor in Palestine" 5-cent fundraising voucher, 1943; designed by American-Jewish artist Sol Nodel (artist marked design): depicts Jewish religious symbols against backdrop of Eretz-Israel landscape (with "tower and stockade" settlement). 

The League was founded in February 1941 by Isaac Rivkind (who also helped establish the American branch of YIVO) to promote the ideals of religious labor in Palestine among the American Jewish community and to give moral and financial assistance to the religious labor movement in Palestine; the organization existed also after the establishment of Israel. Sol Nodel (1912-1976) executed etchings as well as stained-glass pieces and was the brother of Rabbi Julius Nodel (of Congregation Shaare Emeth in Missouri).
