Solomon Schechter on Zionism

“Zionism has succeeded in bringing back into the fold many men and women, both here and in Europe, who otherwise would have been lost to Judaism. It has given them a new interest in the synagogue and everything Jewish, and put before them an ideal worthy of their love and sacrifice.”

“Zionism is the Declaration of Jewish Independence from all kinds of slavery, whether material or spiritual.” (1906)
