- JUEDISCHE RUNDSCHAU, journal of the Zionist Federation in Germany. Founded in 1896 under the editorship of heinrich loewe , it appeared twice weekly and was the chief rival of the anti-Zionist Central-Vereins-Zeitung. By 1937 the paper had a circulation of over 30,000, much of it outside Germany. Its influence on the younger generation of Zionists was profound, especially during the Nazi period when it helped to strengthen Jewish morale. When Hitler made the wearing of the yellow patch compulsory, robert weltsch 's editorial article urged readers to "wear it with pride." Its last editors were Weltsch and Kurt Loewenstein. It was among the Jewish newspapers banned by the Nazis and ceased publication in 1938.
