Detail Description

Only edition of this pamphlet by Elijah Shid (1841-1922) on the settlement of the land of Israel. It was published as part of a series by ha-Zevi. It is based on a discourse given by Shid to the Haveret Yishuv ha-Eretz, delivered on motzai Shabbat 13 Shevat, 1897. It begins with the heading, in contrast to the front wrapper, which is green, perhaps alluding to making the land green, on hakrim and poalim (farmers and workers) who work the eland in moshaviom in Eretz Israel. Shid has visited moshavim and can describe their accomplishments, travail and enemies from a knowledgeable position and experience. Ha-Poalim ve-ha-Akrim is an important and insightful, if little known, description of the settlement of Eretz Israel in the late nineteenth century and the efforts of the Zionist movement to reclaim Eretz Israel for the Jewish people.
