Letter sent by members of Chovevei Tzion in Yekaterinoslav (today known as Dnipro) in Ukraine. In the letter, members of the association thank member Chaim Mendelowitz for all his help with Zionist activities in the city, and they wish him success with his activities in the Land of Israel. Members of the Chovevei Tziyon association in Yekaterinoslav are signed on the letter, for a total of 42 signatures.
The main signatories include one of the leaders of the Zionist movement, Menachem Ussishkin, who wrote: "To one of the few Zionists among us who speaks little and does much, blessings for your journey, "Regional Morashah" (Ussishkin's title was Zionist Morashah of Southern Russia," D. D.), A. M. Ussishkin.
Menachem Ussishkin (1863-1941) was one of the leaders of the Zionist movement, participating from the First Zionist Congress, and was very active in instilling the Hebrew language. (Which is reflected in the fact that many of these signatures are in Hebrew.)
[1] double leaf. 22x36 cm. One side contains the blessing, and the other has the signatures of the members of the association. Fine-very fine condition. Light professional restoration.
