Non-traditional haggadah. Duplicate of typewritten print. Current illustrations and texts.

The foreward contains a passage relating to the survivors of the 'Egyptian bondage' of Europe: 'I am hereby prepared to tell of the exodus from Egypt together with all our Jewish brothers, all the Jews who were encompassed by pangs of death and despised by rivers of g-dless corrupt gentiles who arose to swallow them, and said let's go and annihilate them from among the peoples and the name Israel will be no longer.'

There is a passage relating to the survivors: 'If our arms were too short to rescue those taken to death, we, those who survived, are responsible for what remains of Israel ... there is no back behind which we can hide. The fact is that fate decided we would be standing here, the fate of Israel obligates us to get them to safe haven. It can't not obligate ...'

There is also a passage which relates to the history of the kibbutz: 'This Passover night, 1946, is the eleventh on our soil in Kibbutz Afikim, the fourteenth year from the outbreak of the Jordan river's waters into the soil of the Sea of Galilee and its branches, to water every arid clod of earth ... the night of the Passover seder is the twenty-first in our kibbutz from the day it became a "HaShomer HaTzair" kibbutz. Groups were scattered in the S.S.S.R until they assembled in Afikim ...' and more.

Kibbutz Afikim was established in 1932 by a seed-group of HaShomer HaTzair members in Russia and was called 'Kibbutz HaShomer HaTzair from the S.S.S.R.' also known as Kibbutz 'Netzach' - [Noar Tzufei Chalutzi - pioneer scout youth] from Russia, like the name of the HaShomer HaTzair world movement. It included a group of immigrants from the Soviet Union and from Latvia.
