Palestine Authorities Approve Formation of Maccabi Military Unit

The formation of a special Jewish military unit bearing the name Maccabi has been approved by the British military authorities and by the Palestine government, it is reported today in Haaretz, one of Palestine’s leading daily newspapers.

Several air raid alarms of short duration in Tel Aviv and Heifa were the only discordant notes in this year’s Rosh Hashanah celebration in Palestine. The holidays found the Yishub more prosperous and more peaceful than in many years, despite the war.
