Founder of Labor Zionism

Zionism must of necessity fuse with socialism.

Nachman Syrkin (1868-1924) was Russian-Jewish socialist thinker who set forth the founding principles of the Labor Zionist tree branch. He saw a natural merge between Zionism and socialism in which Jewish immigrants to Palestine would import revolutionary ideas to create a Jewish homeland free of class struggle.
