A poster to support the charity of the Revisionist movement before the State of Israel was established. The charity was named Keren (Foundation) Tel Chai. The charity helped support the underground fighters in the pre-state days of Israel. 

The charity is named to commemorate the fights at Tel Chai, a town in Northern Israel where eight Jews were killed in 1920 when fighting against Arabs who were attacking Jews in the region. The leader of this group was a one-armed Jewish fighter, Yosef (Joseph) Trumpeldor who died with the words “Never mind, It is good to die for our country” on his lips. Trumpeldor was an organizer of the Zion Mule Corps, and is regarded as a national hero today in Israel. Today, at Tel Chai, there is a memorial of a lion which commemorates Trumpeldor and his fellow fighters.
