The Paper focuses on the Zionist Organizations founded in Mandatory Palestine. They presented ideas about age, gender, and Zionism which opposed Zionist perceptions that became dominant throughout the Yishuv on the eve of World War II. The organizations challenged dominant perceptions on masculinity, and by internalizing the category of age-related identity, the seniors sought to promote broader acceptance of forms of masculinity using their newspaper as a platform. The organizations of the senior Zionists were characterized by a male subculture of aging.
