Paragraph 1    A work by Joseph Sapir (1869-1935) about the history of Zionism until the colonization of Palestine under the Hibat Zion movement. It is part of a series called "Tsiyenistishe folks-bibliyotek".
   Joseph Sapir (1869–1935) was a Zionist leader. Born in Kishinev, Sapir qualified as a doctor. A member of Hovevei Zion from his youth, he was one of the most prominent Zionists in Odessa and established a publishing house, Di Kopeke Bibliotek, which published Zionist literature in Yiddish and Russian. In 1903 he wrote a book for the general reader on the essence and history of Zionism, which was published in Russian and Hebrew and was an authoritative source for Zionist education. He edited a Russian-language Zionist weekly called Kadimah ("Forward," later Yevreyskai Mysl', 1907). After the 1917 Revolution Sapir was elected chairman of the South Russia Zionist Organization and was one of the leaders of the committee that aided victims of pogroms. He left Russia after the Bolshevik Revolution, spending several years in Bessarabia, and reached Palestine in 1925. Sapir was director of a department of the Bikkur Holim hospital in Jerusalem. He also engaged in painting and sculpture and published a book of articles and memoirs, Halutzei ha-Tehiyyah (1930).
