Born in Russia in 1856, Gordon makes aliyah in 1904. An early member of Hibbat Zion (a semi-communal farming community in central-Israel), Gordon actively supports the Labor Zionist cause, working in the fields of Palestine despite his old age and lack of manual labor skills. A religious man dedicated to building the Jewish state, Gordon is credited as being an early spiritual leader of Practical and Labor Zionism.
