Soldier's Death Leads to Haggadot Collection

By MOSHE RON

The Jewish News Special
Israel Correspondent

TEL AVIV --- Israel
commemorates the Jewish
communities in the world
which were destroyed by the
Nazis by naming Passover
Haggadot after them.
Now a special Haggada
haS appeared. Thirty-one
years' ago, on the Passover
before the establishment of
the state of Israel, a baby
was born to a couple of new
immigrants who had been
interned for a year in the
refugee camp in Cyprus.
David and Esther Fogel
ere born in Hungary. They
met in Yugoslavia and mar-
ried in the Cyprus camp.
There were religious people.
Their first child was born on
Passover, so they named
him Moshe. -
Moshe Fogel was a very
good pupil in school. He
finished his studies at the
Technion in Haifa and
became a teacher. At the
age of 26 he was killed in
the Yom Kippur War. He

left a pregnant wife. The
baby was named after his
father, Moshe, with the
addition Avi-Hayal (the
father of a soldier).
The elder Fogels under-
went a difficult crisis. They
often visited the Wailing
Wall in order to mourn their
loss. Once they entered a
book shop on Jaffa St. and
found three beautiful
Pesach Haggadot. They
bought them in commem-
oration of the day on which
their son was killed.
Moshe had liked to read
Haggadot. He knew their
contents by heart. He was a
Yeshiva scholar and had the
inclination to study prayers
and historic religious songs.
The -three Haggadot be-
came the start of a collec-
tion. The Fogels established
a special commemoration
shelf for religious books in
their son's yeshiva. The
pupils of this school started
to collect special Haggadot
and sent them to the Fogels.
Within a few months,

they had a collection of the disposal of researchers.
In the collection of the
more than 1,300 Hag-

expensive ones printed in
the 19th Century. They gadot. There are two,

each year. David -and Esther non-Jews after the de-
