After World War I, New York City was the cultural capital city of Zionism. Maurice Samuel was a unique witness to the conflict between Louis Brandeis and Chaim Weizmann, a defender against anti-Zionists like Henry Morgenthau, an informal publicist for the poet Chaim Nachman Bialik, a translator for the orator Shmaryahu Levin, and a lover to the belletrist Marie Syrkin. In the pages of The New Palestine and at the Café Royale, the Rumanian-born, Manchester-educated Samuel sat at the center of a Jewish Renaissance.
