Following the Balfour Declaration, the League of Nations decided in 1922 to establish a “Jewish agency” that would represent the interests of the Jewish people. The primary purpose of this agency, which was officially established by the Zionist Congress only in 1929, was to address the greatest need of the Jewish people in those days: A National Home. Since then, and in every generation, the Jewish Agency for Eretz Yisrael has contended with the greatest and most significant needs of the Jewish Yishuv, the State of Israel and the Diaspora Jewry.
