Palmach Haggadah, 1948

 Haggadah from the 3rd Battalion of the Palmach, from the year 1948

Haggadah from the 3rd Battalion of the Palmach, from the year 1948. The 3rd Battalion of the Palmach was active in the Galilee from the outset of the War of Independence. Passover of that year was spent fighting a difficult battle over the stronghold at Neve-Yoshea. After Passover the battalion soldiers conquered the stronghold. The Haggadah is written under and with the impression left by the battles and deals with the fragile state of the settlement on the eve of the establishment of the State, at one of the breaking points of the War of Independence.
