Scroll of Esther integrated with zionist texts, with Portugese translation, published by the Jewish National Fund. [Editora Pelo Diretorio do Keren Kaiemet LeIsrael] Brazil 1949, Edited by Moshe Feigenblum. Hebrew, Yiddish, Portugese.
Abbreviated story of the megillah. When the traditional story ends, the megillah continues with the zionist story in language copied from the spirit of the megillah: 'And it continues and repeats from generation to generation, as in each generation they stand over us to wipe us out and we were unable to defend ourselves completely. Until the First Zionist Congress assembled for the sake of great salvation, which was also the most realistic defense, and declared: 'Zionism desires to establish a secure shelter in the Land of Israel for the people of Israel ... and the great work of building the national home began ... and in all the lands of their dispersion Jews contribute from their fortunes to prepare the ruins of their land as a defense for the Jews ... and by way of two great pipelines do the children of Israel's contributions flow - by the Jewish National Fund which redeems the people's land and by the United Israel Appeal which settles and builds ...' Rare megillah.
