Abstract

Avigdor Hameiri (Feuerstein) was a writer, poet, playwright and journalist who immigrated from Hungary to Eretz Israel in 1921 and quickly integrated into its cultural and artistic life. A sharp-tongued writer who aimed his barbs everywhere, he was unsuccessful in finding work in the existing newspapers and periodicals and so created his own vehicle. It was called Ha-Mahar ("Tomorrow") — A Platform for Ideological Conflict. At first Ha-Mahar was a monthly which began publication in 1927. However, it appeared on a regular basis only briefly, and afterwards only at long intervals. Between 1927 and 1940, 16 issues were published. Hameiri wrote nearly all the material himself, lashing out at both the right and the left, sparing no person, institution or development in the small Jewish Yishuv of those years. A large portion of his literary work was first published in this organ. During the early years he generally took a rightist stand close to Jabotinsky and the Revisionists. Later, his opinions changed and he aspired to a settlement with the Arabs. In the social and human arena he was an uncompromising spokesman for the little man versus the establishment and the various government bodies. Ha-Mahar is an outstanding example of a one-man newspaper which reflects the opinions and spirit of an independent-minded thinker and a rebel.
