Admin History/Bio
Poale Zion (Workers of Zion) was a Marxist Zionist Jewish workers movement that originated in the Russian Empire around 1900. This movement spread around the world and in late 1905 the Socialist Jewish Labour Party (Poale Zion) was formed in Canada.
In 1919, the Poale Zion Zionist labour movement split into two factions – Left Poale Zion (later Achdut Avodah Poale Zion) and Achdut Avodah (later Mapai). J.B. Salsberg affiliated with the Left Poale Zion, which was founded on the principals established by Ber Borochov and became known as the Borochov Movement. In Canada the Borochov Movement consisted of various organizations – political, cultural and educational. The political branch was the Achdut Avodah Poale Zion. It promoted Zionism and Socialism both in Canada and Israel.
Scope and Content
File consists of records documenting J.B. Salsberg's involvement in the Achdut Avodah Poale Zion movement. Included is correspondence with the Jewish Socialist Labor Party Poale-Zion of America, Undzer Veg bulletins, Hashomer Hatzair newsletters, and a Yiddish booklet by Chaim Zhitlovsky entitled "From Assimilation to Labour Zionism" (published in New York, 1919). Also included are two photographs of J.B. Salsberg that were taken in Boston likely at the second annual convention of the Poale-Zion of America (1923).

Notes
The subjects of this photograph were identified in the original accession list as "Anne, great-grandmother and Jack".

Physical Description
1 photograph : b&w ; 12 x 8 cm
Scope and Content
The snapshot is of an unidentified co-ed group photo at the Delmonte Hotel. Some of the people appear to be the same friends as photographed in photo #20 of the same file. Jack Kamarner may be the individual moving on the steps to the right of the frame, as he is wearing a collared shirt that matches roughly the one worn in photo #20, however the face is blurred, preventing easy identification.
The age of the group appears to be fairly uniform, perhaps in their mid-twenties, suggesting a social organization group activity, or a professional affiliation.
