Booklet published to mark the opening of the port to travellers on the 22nd of Adar 1, 1932, after two years of enthusiastic pioneering work, beginning with the unloading of bags of cement on the sand dunes on the shore through the opening ceremony in the presence of Haim Weizmann and the High Commissioner.

The booklet includes many photos that depict the process of establishing the port, including the building of the breakwater, pier, storage areas and motorboat for passengers - the first manufactured in Palestine, and the mass celebration on opening day. In addition, it includes a detailed review of the various stages of building the port, a short list of dates significant in its development, and many advertisments and greetings from public and private bodies in honor of the opening ceremonies of the first Jewish port.
