The history of the modern Jewish state, from an administrative and bureaucratic perspective, begins with the creation of the mandate. The mandate recognized the “historical connection of the Jewish people with Palestine,” called upon the mandatory power to “secure establishment of the Jewish national home,” and recognized “an appropriate Jewish agency” for advice and cooperation to that end.

This period, which included such writers as Ahad Ha’am (Asher Ginzberg), Chaim Nachman Bialik, and Saul Tchernichowsky, is generally considered the classical age of Hebrew literature. It also saw the rise of a Hebrew daily press. The connection between the language and national revival was drawn by Eliezer Ben-Yehuda, considered the father of the modern Hebrew language.
