Einstein was an early supporter of Zionism, and in 1921 he toured America to raise money for the movement with Dr. Chaim Weizmann. However he was also a pacifist, and his views sometimes led to clashes with Weizmann and other leaders of the movement. In later life he moderated his pacifism. These documents show clearly that he was determined to make his support for Israel public, even though he was in poor health and busy with his scientific work – up to his last breath.
