Excerpt from Zionism: Open Letters Written by Rev. Dr. Jacob Voorsanger, of San Francisco, Cal;, To Hon. Simon Wolf, of Washington, D. C.; 1903-04

You ask me, my dear friend, to express an opinion of your article against Zionism, republished in thecritev'ion, as well as of the correspondence between Professor Gott heil and yourself resulting from this article. I do so with alacrity,'the more because, in view of recent criticisms of my own utterances, I have been constrained to review my attitude toward Zionism, believing it necessary that we, who so persistently condemn the methods by which the Zionists seek to accomplish the salvation of our peo ple, should have a clear case, and should be able to dissipate the fallacies which underlie the movement, even if in the prosecution of the case we should have to admit that, at the present time at least, we can present no plan of our own to mitigate the sorrows of the greater half of the people of Israel. Nor will it be necessary to present schemes. Cut-and-dried plans based upon sentiment only would be an evidence that the people indulging such plans have not sufiiciently measured the distance between cause and effect, and I do not wish to be guilty of so flagrant an error, if I must bend my energies towards the solution of problems that hitherto have proved insoluble if viewed, as they should be, from the rational, practical standpoint of economics, politics, and government. In other words, if, no matter how beautiful and inspiring sentiment may be and undoubtedly is, we could prove by the physical fact that Zionism is a delusion we contrib ute at least something to a better understanding of the questions involved in that one word Zionism, that, no matter how absurd, should always command our rever ent attention for its root is Zion, the well-spring of the Thorah, the centrifugal source of the noblest aspirations of the Jew.
