The 37th World Zionist Congress is part of an historical continuum since Theodor Herzl first convened the Jews in Basel, Switzerland in 1897 and established the Zionist Organization. This October, Zionists from more than 30 countries will gather to discuss and debate the critical issues facing the Jewish people. Times have certainly changed since Herzl, but the challenges remain abundant, even with all that has been accomplished.
