From the World Zionist
Organization

Editor's Note: Rabbi
Maimon described himself
as "last of the first Mizra-
chi" since he had been a
delegate to the constituent
assembly of the movement,
in 1902, and directed it for
50 years. He had been the
first Mizrachi leader to
effect aliya, in 1913, but
throughout his life he had
been a Zionist leader be-
yond the confines of his
own party. A prolific
writer who had published
42 books, he was charac-
terized by three great
loves, as Ben-Gurion put
it:" his love of the Jewish
people, his love of the land
of Israel and the Torah of
Israel and his love of the
Jewish book.
