Broadside Issued by the Ahavat Zion Society – A Call to Support the Jewish Community in Palestine – Vienna, June 1882

Broadside issued by the Ahavat Zion Society. Vienna: Moritz Knöpflmacher, Sivan 5642 [June 1882].
A call for support printed soon afterthe establishment of the Ahavat Zion Society, whose purpose was to collect funds to buy land in Palestine for settlement by Jewish farmers from Eastern Europe.
In response to the anti-Semitic persecutions in Eastern Europe, and particularly after the pogroms in Russia in 1881 (which the Jews referred to as "Storms in the Negev"), societies were formed to support Jewish immigration to America. However, this call, which went against that trend by supporting immigration to and settlement in Palestine, listed the reasons for choosing Palestine.
It is signed, in print, by the directors of the society: Shlomo Zalman Spitzer, Reuven Birer, and others.
28.5 cm. Good condition. Folding marks. Small tears at the edges and along the fold line, most of them repaired by acid-free tape.
Provenance: Rimon Family Collection.
