History Biographical
Poale Zion was started in 1905, with the name being Yiddish for "Labour Zion". Within the many groups that made up the Labour Zionist movement, the Poale Zion was considered to be the more political and radical organization, with the mission of addressing the working class, looking towards eventual settlement in the Land of Israel, and initiating education to prepare for life on a kibbutz. The Poale Zion records in Series B date mainly from 1933-1944 and were created by the Montreal office of this organization in the course of its operations at that time.
Custodial History
The records in this series were donated to CJC by David Rome, probably in the 1940s. David Rome worked for the Montreal branch of the Poale Zion in the late 1930s. He joined Canadian Jewish Congress as its Press officer in 1942.
