500 Soldiers Got a Pocket Haggadah for Passover


The Otakim Press recently presented 500 soldiers in the Nachshon Battalion of the Kfir anti-terror brigade with what is believed to be the world's smallest commercially produced Haggadah for telling the Passover story. Chief Executive Officer Dan Toren of Otakim made the presentation, explaining that the five centimeter by seven centimeter book is a little bigger than the average business card. It is intended for a soldier to be able to take it anywhere because it was important that those far away from home protecing the homeland to connect to the Passover festival.

Otakim is a social online printing system that allows students to print materials and make money from sharing those materials. The contribution to the soldiers was made through the organization for the welfare of Israeli soldiers (Haagudah l'ma'an Hachayal).
