Convened in the Hague, the Political and Practical factions of the Congress face off. The Political Zionists demand a charter before settlement continues, whereas the practical Zionist do not feel it is necessary or prudent to do so. At the end of this debate, the Congress resolves to open an Office in Palestine, which is to be headed by Arthur Ruppin. The Office opens in 1908 in Jaffa.
