Download PDF for this date

More than 100 Jewish children orphaned during the German blitz on this city will be the guests of American Jewish officers and enlisted men at a Chanukah party this Sunday. Jewish soldiers from all the Allied armies stationed around London will attend special military Chanukah services the same day in Bevis Marks Synagogue.

Since Tuesday night, the eve of Chanukah, various observances have been held throughout Britain by Jewish men of the United States, Canadian and other United Nations armed forces being trained here.
