The Mizrachi movement combined Jewish outlook and the idea of the love of Zion. The purpose of the conference was to consolidate a political force within the Zionist movement which could battle the trends from various personalities to raise the "The Question of Culture" at the Zionist Congresses, which it identified as having the intent to strengthen the secular character of the movement and its activists.

Rabbi Yitzchak Ya'akov Reines, founder of Mizrachi, appears in the center.
