Download PDF for this date

A Protestant minister in a Dumfriesshire town is holding regular services for a group of 15 Jewish evacuees every Saturday, it was learned here today. The services were organized with the consent of Glasgow Jewish leaders. They are held Saturday mornings in the minister’s vestry and consist of reading Scripture both in Hebrew and English and recital of prayers from Jewish prayer books.
