Moledet No. 9 – published by the Jewish National Fund Education Department, London 1954.

Moledet01

I just bought this childrens’ magazine for my collection, and was so pleased with it that I decided to write about it.  It is beautifully produced and illustrated with 96 pages plus a fold-out map of Israel. Perhaps a little expensive for 1954 – priced at two shillings.

The first name in the list of editors is Beatrice Barwell, whom I remember so well from the days when I was (briefly) a London Vice-President of the British Zionist Federation.

Beatrice Barwell, known as ‘Trixie’, was born in 1915 and died in 1990.  She was a teacher by profession, and a lifelong servant of the community, active in Jewish Education, the British Zionist Federation and the Board of Deputies.  She was staunchly orthodox, but a fighter for womens’ rights and their inclusion in the service of the community.  She was the President of the National Union of Hebrew Teachers from 1945 to 1965.

The pages from Moledet speak for themselves:
