Description
   Booklet defending and explaining the position of the people of Israel vis-à-vis the resettlement of the land of Israel and the Arabs and Britain. The title page states that it is Adut (testimony) to Israel and the Nations. It is subdivided into two parts, the second being part being further divided into two additional parts. The first part of Adut is On the Revival of the Spirit of Israel and their return to their land. The second part consists of Between us and between the Arabs and Between us and between the English. There is a dedication to the Rachel Hochstein and her mother the late Mariam Suskin. Next is a photograph of R. Porush, who is described as having been born in Jerusalem. A three page list of individuals and organizations follows, and then the text, beginning with the Revival of the Spirit of Israel and their return to their land. That part begins with a word to the reader. Adut is bound with its original greyish wrappers, the back cover describing the contents in English.

Rabbi Menahem Porush later became chairman of the Israel branch of Agudat Israel and afterwards head of World Agudat Yisrael Movement. He served in the Kenesset holding several important and influential positions.
