Subject: happy? - Sept 19 (Brigade established)
9/19/1944: The Jewish Brigade was established. It fought well in Africa and Italy.

        La-olel, v'larach,                   For the helpless and the young,
        She-arim po niftach!                 Wide the gates we fling!
        Lamach v'lazaken,                   For the aged and the lame,
        Anu po chomat magen!                The shield of victory we bring!

                "Shir Ha-Palmach" was written in the Brigade and became a most popular
                song of the Palmach, the striking force of Haganah. From Ruth Rubin,
                A Treasury of Jewish Folksong
