“Ragle Mevasser” by Rabbi Judah Alkalai – Belgrade, 1865 – Booklet in Honor of Alliance Israélite Universelle

Ragle Mevasse, in honor of "Kol Israel Chaverim", by Judah Alkalai, Belgrade, [1865].
A short composition by Rabbi Judah Akalai, dedicated to the foundation of the Jewish organization Alliance Israélite Universelle ("Kol Israel Haverim"). Mentioned in the composition, among other things, are the plan to settle Palestine, the importance and role of the Alliance Israélite Universelle, key figures from early days of Zionism (Moses Montefiore, Rabbi Zvi Hirsch Kalisher, Adolphe Crémieux, Elisa Hertz and others), and other subjects.
Rabbi Judah Alkalai (1798-1878), born in Sarajevo, was one of the forerunners of Zionism. He learned about the Damascus Blood Libel in 1840 and started to formulate a new plan for solving the Jewish question – immigration to Palestine, revival of the Jewish language, acquiring lands and founding public funds. Rabbi Alkalai had high hopes regarding the Alliance Israélite Universelle when it was founded in 1860 – being the first international Jewish organization in the new era, and considered it to be a first and important step towards materializing his plan. In 1874 he immigrated to Palestine with his wife Esther, and passed away four years later. Alkalai was buried in the Mount of Olives cemetery
