Where is he headed? Margalit throughout the world.
Banai and Herbert Russcol answer
these and other questions as they
present the sabra as he really is,
for within his character and values
lie the clues to Israel's makeup
for years to come.
In "The First Million Sabras"
both authors write from first hand
experience. Sabra Margalit Banai
was born in Tel Aviv. In the last
years of the British Mandate, she
served as a courier of secret docu-
ments for Palmach, the striking
force of Hagana. Her husband
came to Jerusalem in 1948 aboard
the Pan Y o r k, a 600-passenger
American ex-ferry boat loaded
with a cargo of some 5,000 "il-
legal" immigrants and a handful
of Aerican volunteers for Hagana.
He and Margalit married, made
their home in Israel, and are now
parents of two sabra children.
The authors complement their
history of the sabra with interest-
ing discussions on such topics as
the kibbutz and its effect upon the
children; on the sabra's "hutzpa "
on the status of husbands, wives
and rabbis in sabra society.
