Two Arab proselytes were accepted into the Jewish faith by the chief rabbinate of Palestine yesterday.

The proselytes were residents of Medina, in the Hedjas, a father, aged 40, and his son, 9. Their acceptance into the Jewish faith took place with the consent of the governor of Jerusalem and the Moslem mufti.
