Mizrachi Movement in America: A Belated but Sturdy Offshoot

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Within a few years of the first Zionist Congress in 1897 and the establishment of Political Zionism, a religious Zionist organization, the Mizrachi movement, was founded. Primarily appealing to religious Jews in Eastern Europe, the Mizrachi movement made very slow inroads into the U.S. As in Europe, the Mizrachi movement in the U.S. appealed primarily to Orthodox Jews. Yosef Salmon evaluates the genesis and growth of the Mizrachi movement in America, paying particular attention to its adaptation to the American Jewish landscape in the era before and after World War I.
