Achad Ha-am (sometimes spelled Ahad Ha'am) was born Asher Zvi Hirsch Ginsberg (1856-1927) was a Zionist activist and essayist.

He was one of the leading figures of Eastern European Zionism, protagonist of Cultural Zionism, coined the term 'Jewish Nietzscheanism'.
Through the Cultural Commission of which he was a member, Achad Ha-am gained much influence over the younger generation of Zionists, suchas Chaim Weizman, Micha Josef Bersyczewski and Hayyim Nahman Bialik. (The Cultural Commission had been established at the Fifth Zionist Congress at Basle at the end of 1901).

Although Achad Ha-am opposed to Herzl's and Pinker's 'Political Zionism' predominant at the World Zionist Congress of the time, he inspired the foundation by Weizmann in 1901 of the 'Democratic Faction,' which promoted Cultural Zionism, contributed to the Hebrew Renaissance through the Cultural Commission and was an influential negotiator during the preparation of the Balfour Declaration.
