Historians of the Jewish settlement in Palestine have awarded the Baron Edmond (Abraham Benjamin) Rothschild the titles of "the famous contributor" and "the Father of the Settlements". His involvement in the rebuilding of Palestine began in 1882. Since then he continued to donate some of his wealth to the establishment of agricultural settlements in Palestine. ("I could have chosen cheaper peasants, but I chose the Jewish peasants.")
He took under his wing the settlement effort: prop up those about to collapse; establish new ones. In 1924 he set up "PICA" which, under the supervision of his son, James Rothschild, continued to manage agricultural settlements and other economic enterprises he had formed, and to assist in the establishment of new settlements.
