Jerusalem, 1923

 A comic Haggadah from Jerusalem, from the year 1923

Written by the teacher, translator, and linguist, Kadish Yehuda-Leib Silman (1880-1937), who was one of the founders of Tel-Aviv and the Beit-Hakerem neighborhood in Jerusalem. The Haggadah deals with life in the Hebrew settlements in Eretz-Israel in a humorous tone: The wise one is the High Commissioner; the evil one is the Arab Union; the shy one is the old settlement, and the one who knows how to ask is the young generation, “that will not talk a lot, but will do a lot, will grow and glorify Israel”.
