Zalman had put his talents fully in the service of the Zionist movement, and even managed to offer Sultan Abdulhamid Khan a large-scale financial offer to consent to Jewish colonization plans. After the First World War, the scope of this bank expanded. In 1932 the main branch moved from Jaffa to Jerusalem.
