Herut, a leading American Zionist organization, is offering “The Unapologetic Zionist’s Haggadah” for Passover. The new anthology includes classic, hard-to-find essays by founding fathers of Zionism, including Vladimir Ze’ev Jabotinsky and Dr. Israel Eldad.
“This Passover booklet is titled M’Avdut L’Herut, From Slavery to Freedom and we created it at this time because Jabotinsky’s brand of Zionist optimism is needed precisely in these dark days of pandemic,” said Karma Feinstein Cohen, the Executive Director of Herut North America.
“Our fervent hope is that through this unique compilation readers will be provided a respite from worries about coronavirus by the Passover thoughts we have included from the world of Revisionist Zionism, old and new.”
The 20-page PDF booklet also contains recent articles that are included with the intention of increasing understanding of the Seder and the overall holiday.
This collection of essays and thoughts about Passover can be used to complement the use of a Haggadah during the Seder meal or read at other times during the holiday.
“Zionist education is Herut’s main mission, and has been since our inception, and that was one reason for the publishing of this Passover anthology,” said Herut North America’s National Director Moshe Phillips.
“But, we also thought that many people this year are facing spending their Seder without their family and friends as they look forward to every year and these articles will provide a fresh perspective on this amazing holiday and allow readers to draw encouragement at this challenging time.”
Herut is an international movement for Zionist pride and education and is dedicated to the ideals of pre-World War Two Zionist leader Ze’ev Jabotinsky. A downloadable version of its Haggadah is available here.
