Non-traditional haggadah, stencil print with impressive illustrations and current texts.

Aside original songs dealing with the exodus from Egypt and springtime, there is harsh text relating to the events of the Holocaust in the present and attempts to immigrate (illegally) to the Land of Israel: 'And great is the chaos around, and terror around the chaos, and as we pray, which ear will hear ... and we clench teeth and raise fists of anger, on whose head will it land, the chaos will swallow all of them, the wind will carry away, and as they are lost, they will be lost, and there is no other way, we are powerless and there is no support ... waves of rage surround ... the heart is full of anxiety facing a strange enemy world.'

In contrast to these difficult feelings, there is a passage expressing hope: 'They will gather in the land, those lost at sea ... All these, whom no shore in the world will accept except the shore of their land. If there are stray ships at sea with Jewish refugees, their place is with us, because they have no shelter except in this Land. Because the Land of Israel needs everyone who knocks at its gates, loyal and ready to strengthen its settlement ... ships at sea with Jewish refugees will enter the Land, the Land of their national home and they will be with us ...' There is also an interesting passage relating to the coming of Mashiach and more.

Givat Brener is a kibbutz established by pioneers from Lithuania and Volhynia in a group that came together in 1926.

[26] pages, 21 cm. Slight diagonal tear in the corner of the second page on the upper left [lack] without damage to text. Aside from this, very fine condition.
