Administrative History
In the years following the 1st Zionist Congress held in Basle, Switzerland in 1897, Zionist organizations were established around the world.
In Toronto one of the first Zionist societies to be founded was the B'nai Zion Association. This organization was established as a mutual benefit society in 1903. It provided sick, funeral and unemployment benefits to its members.
However, its main purpose was the promotion of Zionism. It was involved in the dissemination of Zionist material, and sponsored lectures and meetings, in addition to raising funds to suppo~t the establishment of Jewish settlements in Palestine. It continued to perform these same activities following the establishment of the state of Israel.
B'nai Zion has also been involved in local activities. It was active in anti-missionary efforts and also provided educational and cultural programming for children.

Admin History/Bio
The Herzl Zion Club of Toronto was organized in 1910 by John Shayne, as a Jewish boys fraternal club. Members of the club engaged in athletic activates, minstrel shows, debates and lecture series and other cultural activities such as dances and theatrical productions. They were famous for their staged follies at the Loew's Winter Garden Theatre on Yonge Street.
The Club originally met on Sundays at the Zionist Institute, until they purchased their own clubhouse at 210 Beverley Street after the First World War. By the end of the 1920s, as many of the boys entered the professions and got married, the club experienced a waning in membership and was eventually forced to disband.
In May 1943, a reunion was organized by former members Jack Samuel and Nat Gollom. The following year the club re-formed, but this time with a greater emphasis placed on fundraising, specifically for the Combined Palestine Appeal (later the United Jewish Appeal) and the Hebrew University. The Club also began publishing an internal newsletter entitled the Herzl Zion Digest. They later affiliated with the Zionist Organization of Canada, Central Region, and often sent delegates to ZOC conferences.

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).
