Theodor Herzl (May 2, 1860 – July 3, 1904), born Benjamin Ze’ev Herzl, was an Austro-Hungarian journalist, playwright, political activist, and writer who was one of the fathers of modern political Zionism.

Herzl formed the World Zionist Organization and promoted Jewish migration to Palestine in an effort to form a Jewish state. Though he died long before its establishment, he is generally considered a father of the State of Israel, formed in 1948.
