Rabbis and presidents of the various synagogues in England were urged to observe peace Sabbath on the Saturday preceding Armistice Day in a circular issued by Dr. Joseph H. Hertz. Chief Rabbi of the British Empire.

The rabbis were urged to dwell on the Messianic ideals of peace righteousness and universal brotherhood in their sermons on that day. The text of a special Armistice prayer was forwarded to all the synagogues.
