During the birth of the Zionist movement, Jews from around the world were looking for international support in their efforts to establish a Jewish homeland. President Warren G Harding was one of the few willing to support that was tolerant of all faiths and appointed several Jewish members to his advisory board.
On this day September 21st, in 1922 President Warren G Harding signs a joint resolution to establish a Jewish homeland in Palestine (Israel). By signing the resolution President Harding helped bring the establishment of the Jewish state one step closer for the Jewish people.
The resolution that Harding signed not only showed support for the establishment of a Jewish homeland but also stated that the establishment of such a homeland would not be prejudice to other faiths and would ensure the protection of all religious buildings and sites.
