At least two Jews are included in King George’s New Year’s Day honor list made public today. They are Sir Victor Sassoon, a member of the prominent banking family, who received the Grand Cross of the British Empire, and Moshe Lovin, president of the Jewish Community in Haifa, who was awarded the order of the British Empire. Two Palestine Arab sheiks were also given the Order of the British Empire.
