Convened in Basle, these meetings end the long-standing debate between practical and political Zionists. Synthetic Zionism is adopted as a compromise and mode of operation. This congress is also the first where a session is held entirely in Hebrew. Otto Warburg, a practical Zionist, is elected president of the WZO, replacing Wolfson. Accordingly, WZO Executive offices move from Cologne to Berlin.
