The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) was established in 1897 and is the oldest pro-Israel organization in the United States. With offices around the country and in Israel, the ZOA is committed to educating government officials, the media and students about the Arab-Israel conflict. It also works to promote strong U.S.-Israel relations and to fight anti-Semitism. This two-box collection includes the records of the Detroit office of ZOA and proceedings from the national ZOA. The writings of Morton Klein, national ZOA director, are part of these records. Prominent in this collection is the correspondence and writings of Ezekiel Leikin, executive director of the Detroit chapter. Leikin is the author of The Beilis Transcripts: The Anti-Semitic Trial That Shook the World, 1993.
