A film on behalf of the Information Center (Hasbara) and Chief Education Officer at the IDF Information Service, documenting the four-day march that took place between April 1st and 4th, 1963, in which 16,000 marchers participated. The four-day march began as a military march of the IDF and over the years has become a civil sport event attended by many citizens, including representatives of companies such as Hadera Paper factory and Bank Leumi, alongside Hebrew students from Ulpan Akiva, and even tourists from Switzerland and the Netherlands. The film documents the days of the march and the atmosphere in the tent camp where the participants sleep, depicting how shoemakers set up a workshop and repair shoes, and a clinic treats the many warts that pop up during the four days. The parade ends on Jaffa and King George streets in Jerusalem with a procession viewed by a large crowd.
