Non-traditional haggadah with reference to the events of the period. Stencil print with illustrations.

Alongside original spring pieces, following the phenomenon of leaving kibbutzes after the establishment of the State, an interesting piece appears relating to the importance of living in the kibbutzes, even after the State's establishment: 'And also after the establishment of the State - the kibbutz is the way of the king. It's not a legacy, not an aftermath of earlier periods, and not the creation of a sect of chassidim clinging to the obsolete. The kibbutz is a creation of this Land and its unique conditions ... As long as the Land is not completely inhabited, as long as the entire nation is not concentrated in its Land - the kibbutz is a Zionist imperative ... The kibbutz is the seed of socialism in the Land and the base of its struggles, and therefore is our inevitable reality for the present and the future.'

The haggadah's author attempts to counter claims against the character of the kibbutz which was perceived as intended for minority groups: 'The kibbutz is not a commune of chosen people, not a commune of the poor and not a commune of monks. The kibbutz - is a commune charting the way for the masses and its purpose is the spiritual and material wealth of man ...' There is also a piece which refers to Jewish heroism is the Land of Israel after the holocaust: 'From within the holocaust, the destruction and the horror which came upon our people - we have arisen.'

There is an interesting piece relating to immigration from various countries: 'Kibbutzes and blocks, tribes of Israel are uprooted intact to their countries from their adopted homelands and are newly planted in the ground of the homeland, from Bulgaria and from Yemen, from Poland and from Morocco, from Greece and from Turkey, from Iraq and from America, from Germany and from Austria, from Tunisia and from Algeria, from Iran and from Egypt ... from Chicago ... from Aleppo ...' and more.
