Zionist treatise by R. Juda Leib (Fishman) Maimon (1875–1962), rabbi and leader of religious Zionism. Born in Marculesti, Bessarabia, Maimon studied in Lithuanian yeshivot and, after being ordained, served as a preacher (Maggid meisharim) in Marculesti and in 1905–13 as rabbi in Ungeni. In 1900 he met Rabbi Isaac Jacob Reines, founder of Mizrachi, and afterward took an active part in the founding conference of Mizrachi, which was held in Vilna, and in its first world conference in Pressburg (Bratislava). Beginning with the Second Zionist Congress, he participated in all the subsequent Congresses and was for many years a member of the Zionist General Council. From 1935 he served as Mizrachi's representative on the Zionist Executive, was vice-chairman of the Executive, and headed the Department for Artisans and Retail Business as well as the Department of Religious Affairs.
