Storyline

This newsreel segment depicts the first voyage of a Polish ocean liner to Palestine in 1934. The film contains crudely edited footage of the festive departure from the Black Sea port of Constanta, the passengers enjoying the pleasures of the open sea, the recitation of Yom Kippur prayers on deck, and an extended cantorial performance. Other images include passengers dancing the hora, singing Zionist songs, and the impressive urban vistas of Haifa and Tel-Aviv, which greeted the visitors' eyes upon their arrival.
