Happy New Year, Theodore Herzl

Picture is courtesy of Dr. Hayim Grosman who gave a lecture On 5 April in the Yavne symposium titled the “Magen David and Theodore Herzl: two symbols in one price .” He said the Zionist movement used Herzl’s icon in order to promote its purposes. The Zionist movement used the Magen David in a similar way. Here, in this Happy New Year Blessing Card from the beginning of the past century, we see both symbols and under Herzl's portrait we see his famous saying (in Hebrew) - if you will want (a land of your own) it will stop being a legend.
