The hope that the Palestine pioneers have the characteristics of the American Jewish pioncers was expressed by Tagore in a communication to his former pupil, Sulamith Flaum.

Tagore declares that he remembers vividly the immigrant Jews in America and hopes to find similar types in Palestine. He is greatly interested in Zionism. Only the Jews are able to build a bridge between the East and the West, he states.
