As one of the most prominent Zionist leaders ever, as well as the founder of Jewish National Fund, Theodore Herzl’s influence has reverberated throughout modern Jewish history. And as the largest owner of Herzl memorabilia with over 5,000 items, David Matlow has made it his life’s goal to educate people on the life and legacy of Theodore Herzl. Through both his collection and his Herzl Project, Matlow helps people of all ages recognize the vast impact Herzl has had and inspires them to follow in his footsteps. Host Steven Shalowitz sits down with Matlow to discuss the history of Herzl and the early Zionist movement, how he came to acquire his vast collection, and how Herzl’s theater background helped him recognize the importance of projecting the correct image.
