Statehood-era run of this important Zionist photographic periodical, including the issue from the month when Statehood was declared (May 1948), filled with hundreds of black-and-white photographs, tables, maps, and articles. Covers topics such as “Report on Latin America, ” “Youth that Saved a Nation, ” and “Way of the Mediator. ” The Histadrut “was founded in December 1929 in Haifa to look out for the interests of Jewish workers...The Histadrut became one of the most powerful institutions in the state of Israel, a mainstay of the Labour Zionist movement and, aside from being a trade union, its state-building role made it the owner of a number of businesses and factories and, for a time, the largest employer in the country. Until Israel began moving away from a socialist economy, the Histadrut, along with the government, owned most of the economy” (Wikipedia 2017) . “Newspaper headlines report the sensational side of events in Palestine, but rarely the important things that happen daily. The Jewish State is being built by men and women with a single mind and single purpose, men and women of the Histadrut who stick to their task in fields and factories, who reluctantly take the gun in hand to ward off the enemy. HISTADRUT FOTO-NEWS will bring to American Jewry the story of Palestine in its proper perspective. Its heroes will be workers. Its drama will be the life of the pioneers who build not only new physical wonders but social and spiritual patterns that suit the rebirth of an ancient, civilized people. ” SUBJECT(S) : Labor and laboring classes, Israel, Periodicals.
