While in the Swiss city of Basel to mark 125 years since the First Zionist Congress, President Isaac Herzog is photographed standing in the famous pose struck by Theodore Herzl on the balcony of the hotel where the event was held.

The photo of Herzl, who is credited with having “founded the Jewish state” with the first gathering in 1897, was taken in 1901 during the Fifth Zionist Congress.

Herzog tweets a copy of the photograph, adding a quote from Herzl: “Zionism is an infinite ideal.”
