   First edition. 12 pp., 195:155 mm., clean copy bound as published.
   Religious-Zionist Haggadah to read the night of Yom ha-Azma’ut (Israeli Independence day) issued by David Bergman for the religious youth group Ha-Mishmeret ha-Zeirah. The verso of the title page has a note acknowledging the influence and assistance of R. Zevi Judah Kook and R. Shabbatai Borenstein. There is a preface from Bergman in which he notes that the purpose of this Haggadah is to give a religious aspect to the celebrations accompanying Yom ha-Azma’ut. It is his hope that it will be used annually, giving a religious expression to Israeli Independence day. There is an introduction from R. Kook and then the text. Haggadat Azma'ut begins with fifteen quotes from Midrash ha-Gadol, the Talmud, the Bible, and piyyutim, on the need to give thanks and on the ingathering of the Jews. Next are a series of quotes on the praise of the land of Israel from Midrashim, concluding with quotes from Orot, by R. Abraham Isaac Kook, first chief Ashkenazic rabbi of the land of Israel.
Paragraph 2    עצרת הנער הדתי יום העצמאות תשי"ח. (נערך והובא לדפוס על ידי דוד ברגמן) ...

מעבר לשער הובעה תודה להרב צבי יהודה הכהן קוק, שתרם מפרי עטו במיוחד לחוברת זו, ולרב שבתי בורנשטיין, שסייע בעצה ובהדרכה.
