The first Jewish United States Supreme Court Justice, Brandies embraces Zionism, justifying open American Jewish support for a Jewish national home in Palestine without being tagged as disloyal to America. In 1915, he writes, “loyalty to America demands…that each American Jew become a Zionist.” Brandeis’ friendship with President Woodrow Wilson helps secure American support for both the Balfour Declaration in 1917 and the British Mandate in 1922 for establishing the Jewish national home.
