InterTnua Meeting - Relations with Hashomer Hatzair were relatively cool due to the serious philosophical differences of our parent political parties in Israel, Mapam (them, Marxist pro-Soviet left wing) vs Progressive Party (us, liberal progressives). Contact was limited with them to Maccabia sport events and community celebrations. Hashomer continued to meet at Centro Israelita, but in 1956-57, was permitted to build an office in a corner of the main salon (right edge of picture) and then there were a few attempts to have a joint meeting. This picture shows such an event, with Hanoar chaverim in white chultzot (shirts) and Hashomer in blue.
