   EACH COIN A HANDFUL OF EARTH 
 
To finance purchases of land in the Land of Israel, the Jewish National Fund revived the ancient custom of donating one-tenth of a shekel. The JNF asked for contributions of one grush (10 mils) from each Jew in the Land of Israel, and the money was allocated to redeeming the land. The familiar JNF blue box was found in every educational institution and in many homes throughout the country. Children were taught to make a modest contribution every week toward the redemption of the land. (1930s)

The Jewish National Fund, established early in the 20th century, coordinated the efforts of the people of Israel in land reclamation and settlement. Dealing with reclamation throughout the Land of Israel, it helped Jews settle in barren, desolated parts of the country. This poster was printed in Warsaw, Poland. (1930s)

   HELP THEM BUILD THE JEWISH  FUTURE 
 
The United Jewish Appeal was the central fund-raising agency among the Jews of the United States. Its main aims were to help develop the State of Israel and to aid the Joint Distribution Committee, which was providing assistance to Diaspora Jewish communities. As statehood neared, the UJA financed aliyah and aided in developing the economy that would absorb the new immigrants. The UJA also devoted funds to education, cultural projects and vocational training for the immigrants. (1944-45)

Yearning for peace, the population of the young State of Israel paid a war loan. The new country needed to arm its fighting forces, and proceeds of the war loan were dedicated to this purpose. (1949)

   IT ALL DEPENDS ON YOU 
 
To raise Jewish morale in the Land of Israel, the pre-State underground army known as the Haganah conducted recruiting and fund-raising drives. The organization worked to encourage high motivation as a way of strengthening the Jewish community. (1947)
