Delegate's Pin to 22nd Annual Zionist Organization of America Convention

Unknown Maker

Chicagoan Isadore Turner (ca. 1882-1966) served for fifty years as a leader in the local Zionist movement. Turner was deeply committed to this enterprise and was involved with a group called the Knights of Zion (KOZ), which became the first national Zionist organization in the United States in 1897.

This silver delegate's pin holds a paper nameplate inscribed with the name of Isadore Turner. A circular medal with blue Magen David is suspended from a silk ribbon with American flag design. Behind the medal is a second silk ribbon, divided into white and pale blue halves, and stamped with inscription.
