Six month run (January-June, 1928) of the ZOA's periodical in the USA. It contains numerous articles, photos, biographies, advertisements, of early Zionist leaders and extensive coverage of affairs in Erez Israel and the USA regarding Zionism. Originally founded in 1901 by Louis Lipsky as The Maccabean it became The New Palestine magazine in New York, the first English language Zionist periodical in the U.S. Under Lipsky's editorship, the magazine often exercised a powerful influence on Zionist actions in the U.S. Lipsky served first as secretary, then chairman of the executive committee of the Federation of American Zionists, which was replaced by the Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) in 1917. In the ensuing Brandeis Weizmann rift over the financial support and control of Jewish Palestine, Lipsky backed Weizmann. Lipsky was ZOA president from 1922 to 1930, and then became president of the Eastern Life Insurance Company (1930–59).
