Lot Number 422

Collection of Receipts and Payment Orders – The Sejera Farm, 1900-1913

Thirteen printed receipts and payment orders of the Sejera farm, with information filled in in handwriting, stamps and signatures. 1900-1913. French.
Most of the receipts are printed on official papers of Sejera, and some of the receipts are from companies that supplied products to the farm. Some are signed by Eliahu Krause, who served as director of the farm on behalf of the Jewish Colonization Association until 1913, and later became the director of the Mikveh Israel Agricultural School. One receipt appears to be signed by the writer Shmuel Pevzner, who was a delegate to the First Zionist Congress (1897), a founder of the Technion, and a founder of the Hadar HaCarmel neighborhood in Haifa. The receipts are mainly for payments, purchases, repairs, and day-to-day expenses: household furnishings, a medicine cabinet, trees, and the like.
The JCA established the farm at Sejera in 1899 as a center for agricultural training. Work on the farm began in 1900, and the agricultural colony of Ilaniya was established on the land of the farm in 1902. David Ben-Gurion was among the farmers in the colony. Among the successes of the Sejera farm’s agricultural project in its early years were the transfer of guard duty for the farm to Jewish hands by the Bar Giora organization, the founding of the HaHoresh Association in order to organize all the workers of the Galilee in the agricultural colonies and the national farms; and the founding of the first farming collective.
