Ze'irei Zion in Yedinitz

Yitzchak Bar-Zion –Borochin

        During the early 1920s there was a general awakening of interest within the Bessarabia Zionist movement in the days following the Balfour Declaration, the establishment of the Keren Hayesod Fund, and the establishment of the Halutz [Pioneer] organization in Bessarabia that had one of its first branches in Yedinitz.

Poalei Zion in Yedinitz

Moshe Magen-Shitz

        In sources on the history of Poalei Zion in Russia, i.e. chronological lists in various Jewish encyclopedias (some of which were written by Ber Borochov), there is mention of cities and town in Bessarabia where groups and supporters of the movement operated. Among them were Kishinev, Talnesht, Soroki, Bender and others, but not Yedinitz. In those days in the beginning of the 20th century, individual Zionists or groups undefined by party were active. Only after the First World War and the Romanian conquest distinctions among Zionists emerge.
