A complete record of the participation of Jews in the Canadian war effort has been issued here by the Canadian Jewish Congress. It includes a list of the 14,000 Jewish enlistees now in service.

The national executive council of the Congress announced today that it has established a rehabilitation committee to deal with the problem of demobilized Jewish servicemen and to insure full support by the Jewish community of the government’s rehabilitation program.
