About Moses Silver, Rabbi Zilber
Rabbi Moses Silver, whose father, grandfather, and great-grandfather had all been Orthodox rabbis was grief-stricken on the death of Theodore Herzl, suggested to his sons that they start a Hebrew-speaking Zionist youth group.
Thus the Herzl Zion Club was born. Its members included Maxwell Silver and a younger boy Barnett Brickner (who in 1925 would become rabbi of the Euclid Avenue Temple).
