Typed Letter Signed: "David Ben-Gurion" as Prime Minister and Minister of Defense of Israel, 1p, 6x7¾. Jerusalem, 1957 April 25. In Hebrew, translated. On letterhead with menorah seal to S. Chazan and Raush Piena, Tel-Aviv. In Hebrew, translated. Begins: "Council Members". In full: "I was privileged with great honor to send you my blessings, in the 75th year to eth establishment of the village-the first Jewish village in the Galil. The first settlers of Raush Piena were not arrogant, did not seek office or property for themselves, and did not declare themselves saviours-their life ambition was simple; they came to the country to work and save it, they chose the simple deed as their life project, the daily routine of truthful achievement and prophetic redemption and in this selection they were harder than rock and stronger than death. Continue their ways and revive the Galil. With Compliments." David Ben-Gurion (1886-1973), who became known as "The Father of Israel", became captivated with Zionism during his youth in Poland. Born David Gruen, he adopted the ancient Hebrew name Ben-Gurion in 1906 at age 20, when he immigrated to Palestine. Ben-Gurion, who proclaimed Israel's independence on May 14, 1948, was its first leader as Chairman of the Provisional State Council (May 14-May 17, 1948). On May 17, he became Israel's first Prime Minister (1948-1953) and Chaim Weizmann became President. Ben-Gurion devoted his life to establishing a Jewish nation, and encouraged the return of Jewish people from throughout the world. After serving again as Prime Minister from 1955-1963, Ben-Gurion devoted himself to writing. He published Israel: The Years of Challenge (1963) and The Jews in Their Land (1966). Creased. Two file holes at blank right margin. Fine condition.
