Event: First Wave of Jewish Immigration to Palestine

User login

European Jews begin to emigrate to Palestine, and within 20 years, about 25,000 Jewish immigrants (mainly from Eastern Europe) have settled. Settlers establish agricultural enterprises, thanks to the massive financial contributions of wealthy European Jews, most notably Baron Edmond de Rothschild and Baron Maurice de Hirsch.
