David Matlow owns the world’s largest private collection of Theodor Herzl memorabilia. Through his website and weekly Canadian Jewish News online column, David uses his collection to inform people about the history of the Zionist movement and the State of Israel.

Collecting the Dream tells Theodor Herzl’s story illustrated through items in David Matlow’s collection of Herzl memorabilia. Herzl is not only an important historical figure as the visionary of the State of Israel and founder of political Zionism, but his life and work serve as a continuing inspiration to foster his dream of a homeland for the Jewish people in Israel.

David is a lawyer and partner at Goodmans LLP in Toronto. He is a past Chair of the Jewish Foundation of Greater Toronto and was the Co-Chair of Toronto’s 2015 Campaign for the United Jewish Appeal. He is a member of the Board of Directors for the Center for Israel Education and the Ontario Jewish Archives.

As part of his presentation, David will discuss his Herzl Project, one of the elements of which is “reverse collecting” where items from his collection are reunited with the original owner or a descendant.
