Montreal (Jul. 19)
The Canadian Jewish Congress today announced that King George “has graciously consented to grant a message for the special edition of the Holy Scriptures which is being distributed to each of the 10,000 Jewish men and women in the Canadian war services.” The message reads:
“To all serving in my forces by sea, or land, or in the air, and indeed, to all my people engaged in the defense of the Realm, I commend the reading of this book. For centuries the Holy Scriptures has been a wholesome and strengthening influence in our national life, and it behoves us in these momentous days to turn with renewed faith to this Divine source of comfort and inspiration.” This book is the most recent in a series published for the Jewish men in the services.
