KKL-JNF 120th Anniversary

KKL-JNF 120th Anniversary

On December 29, 1901 the Fifth Zionist Congress decided to establish the Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael - Jewish National Fund (KKL-JNF). The ensuing question was: how to spread this news to the Jewish People, who were scattered throughout the world? Johann Kremenetzky, the first Chairman of KKL-JNF had an idea. He printed a stamp at a print shop in Vienna, with the intention of distributing it among Jews around the world. The stamp featured a Star of David with the word “Zion” in the center. Branches adorned the sides of the stamp and sunrays emerged from it as if to herald a new dawn. The stamp was designed by Ephraim Lilien, a gifted artist and enthusiastic Zionist.

In total, thirty million of these stamps, known as the “Zion Stamp”, were printed in 18 different countries. Jews would place them next to the official postal stamps of the countries in which they lived. The Zion Stamp was a significant way of spreading the Zionist idea throughout the world.
