“Haneiroth Hallalu Anu Madlikin…”

Colored. Linen-backed. 39 x 27.5 inches.


Est: $5,000 - $7,000
Poster with caption borrowed from the Chanukah liturgy recited during the kindling of the Menorah, asking: “How Will These Lights be Kindled? - By Donations to Keren Hayesod to Build up Eretz Israel.” Designed by Nahum Guttman the focus of the poster is the Arch of Titus panel-relief of the triumphal procession of “The Spoils of War.’ However here, the Jews are depicted looking strongly determined and feature a David Ben-Gurion look-a-like marching westwards to reclaim Eretz Israel.
