The immigrants, many of whom fled anti-Semitism and economic hardship in Eastern Europe, came to build a Jewish Homeland. They built the land, founded the Kibbutz Movement, created the first Jewish Defense organizations which later became the Haganah and the Israeli Army, revived the Hebrew language, and were at the forefront of the movement to create a Jewish State.
