Gordon, Aharon David

(A. D.)
(1856-1922)
   A Hebrew writer and spiritual mentor of Labor Zionists who believed in settlement of the land. Gordon was born in Troyanov, Russia. He was given a position in the financial management of Baron Guenzburg's estate and remained in this position for 23 years. In 1904, because he had to find other employment, he moved to Palestine, and five years later, he brought his family. He became involved in manual agricultural work but also started writing articles in 1909 concerning his outlook on labor, Zionism, and Jewish destiny, which became known as the "religion of labor." He died in Degania.
