Brit HaChashmonaim was a religious-Zionist youth movement active in Palestine from 1937 until the establishment of Israel. It was headed by Rabbi Moshe Zvi Segal and Baruch Duvdevani. The movement shared Jabotinsky's philosophies, and many of its members joined the underground movements of Etzel and Lechi. It operated like a military movement, as noted in this booklet, and was composed of groups who underwent basic training. Content: preface, bylaws and constitution, emblem, hymn, oath of allegiance, and dates of the movement's holidays.
Original cardboard cover with aging stains. The booklet is in very fine condition.
