A comprehensive Encyclopedia of Jewish Knowledge in One Volume with a photograph to frontispiece of 'Airplane View of Hebrew University, Mount Scopus. First edition, not published again until 1946. Edited by Jacob de Haas in collaboration with move than one hundred and fifty scholars and specialists. Jacob De Haas (1872 1937) was a British Hasidic Jew, a journalist and an early leader of the Zionist movement, who propagated the movement in the United States. He moved to the United States in 1902. Theodor Herzl, had suggested to Richard Gottheil that he hire de Haas as the new secretary of the Federation of American Zionists (FAZ) to replace Stephen Samuel Wise. De Haas assumed the leadership of the fragmented American Zionist movement. One of his best known accomplishments was his befriending of Louis Brandeis, the best known, and admired secular Jew in America. De Haas introduced Brandeis to the ideas of Theodor Herzl and ideals of Zionism. After a relatively short period of examination and self-examination, Louis Brandeis became an ardent, committed Zionist in 1908. More importantly, Brandeis, would head the FAZ and the American Zionist movement by 1912. xv, i, 686 pages. Bookseller Inventory # 003134
