The festival of Chanukah, which will be observed from Sunday evening. December 18th, to Monday. December 26th. will be marked by celebrations on the part of the Y. M. H. A’s. Y. W. H. A’s, and Jewish Community Centers in a number of cities throughout the country.

For the purpose of assisting the Centers in the celebrations, the Jewish Welfare Board has made available a Bulletin containing material for the carrying out of programs.

The Jewish Welfare Board is also arranging through its representatives and community committees for the appropriate celebration of the holiday on the part of Jewish men in the United States army and navy service and marine corps, and in Veterans Bureau hospitals. Religious services, entertainments, and a social program will be provided where men are stationed, both in the United States and in outlying points, including Manila, Hawaif, and Panama.

The United Synagogue Extension Bureau on Scouting which was recently organized under the direction of Emanuel Hayt, has arranged Chanukah Festival Celebrations for the Boy Scouts.
