(p.38) Two Political Trends (Up to 1906)
The Jews of Pinsk, 1881 to 1941
Stanford University Press

This chapter examines political trends in Pinsk, Belarus, up to 1906, beginning with the Russian Jewry's communal activism prompted by the 1881 pogroms known as sufot banegev. It also looks at the emergence of the Hibbat Zion (Love of Zion) nationalist movement, the rise of political Zionism, the “uprising” of working class youngsters, the creation of the Bund and the Poalei Zion Party, and the founding of the Sionisty Socialisty Party. The Sionisty Socialisty Party was formed in response to the doctrine of autonomism advocated by Simon Dubnow, who proposed a solution to the Jewish question: securing autonomy of the Diaspora in individual countries. Both the Zionist movement and the Bund stimulated and energize the Jews then living in Pinsk.

Keywords:   Pinsk, Jews, communal activism, sufot banegev, Hibbat Zion, Zionism, working class, Bund, Sionisty Socialisty Party, Belarus
