After consultation with Lilienblum, Schapira, Mendelstamm and others in 1883 a memorandum was sent out calling for the establishment of a central committee to be elected by a congress of delegates from all Societies for the Settlement of Erez Israel. Shortly afterward the Zerubavel society was founded in Odessa and became the central society of the movement.
