Download PDF for this date

Palestine Jewry will this year again celebrate the Purim Festival by holding the annual Purim Carnival at Tel Aviv which was not held last year, because of the situation in the country after the August outbreak. The quashing of the death sentence which had been passed on the Jewish police corporal Hinkis in connection with the riots was announced just on the eve of the Purim Festival, and although there was no regular carnival, Palestine Jewry was in a joyful mood on this account, and some festivities were arranged. Special railway rates to Tel Aviv are available at all Palestine Railway stations from Friday, the 27th. inst. till Tuesday, March 3rd., the day of the Purim Festival, to enable people to go to the Carnival city.
