The Russlan


Ruslan, 1919 (PHZR\1252402)"The S.S "Ruslan" reaches the Jaffa shore. On board are 671 returnees and olim from Russia. This is considered the beginning of the Third Aliyah- sometimes compared to the American Mayflower".(Naor, Zionism: Timeline, Articles, Documents, Glossary, The Zionist Library, The Publishing House of the World Zionist Organization, 2002, p. 84).


The Central Zionist Archives houses documents of the Third Aliyah, some of which regard the arrival of Ruslan, including passenger lists.
