Download PDF for this date

All shops in the Whitechapel district, London’s Jewish quarter, will be closed tomorrow when King George V. is carried to his final resting place.

Every shop window in the section displays a portrait of the late King together with a message of sympathy.

Memorial services will be conducted tomorrow afternoon by Chief Rabbi J. H. Hertz at the Great Synagogue. Other memorial services will be held in the evening in all synagogues throughout England.
