"The shekel must, however, not become merely a voting card; it must again become what Herzl conceived it to be - the certificate of Jewish citizenship.
It is essential that this shekel be purchased every year without reference to Congresses or elections. This duty must be made clear to workers in all parties.
It is their task to further this educational process, to arouse the masses of the Jewish people to a sense of active Jewish citizenship and to a realization of the necessity for every potential Zionist to become an active Zionist."
