Memorial exercises commemorating the first anniversary of the riots in Palestine will be held Thursday evening at Temple Rodeph Sholom. Announcement of the meeting was made by Jacob de Haas, chairman for organization of the Zionist Organization of America, which is sponsoring a nation-wide series of memorial meetings for the Palestine martyrs.

The memorial exercises will also mark the induction into the Rodeph Sholom pulpit of Rabbi Louis I. Newman of San Francisco, member of the Zionist Administration, who was recently called to the local temple. Rabbi Newman will deliver the memorial address and Mr. de Haas will preside at the exercises. Cantor Nathan G. Meltzoff will chant the traditional memorial prayer for martyrs.

Similar exercises are being, held throughout the country in practically every large community. A uniform service for the occasion has been devised by the Zionist Organization in collaboration with Conservative, Orthodox and Reform Jewish religious leaders.
