British Jewry Book of Honour

THE CHIEF RABBI THE VERY REV. DR. HERTZ. Off ice o f the Chief R a bi“b I earnestly hope that British Jewrys Book of Honour will find a place in every Jewish home throughout the Empire. We owe it to the brave sons of Israel whoso gladly gave their lives that Freedom and Righteousness prevail to see to it that their names shall not be blotted out nor the memory of their heroic deeds forgotten. This permanent written record of the part played by Anglo- Jewry in the Great War will help lovers of the Truth in their war­fare against the malicious slander that the Jew shrinks from the sacrifices demanded of every loyal citizen in the hour of national danger. The Jewish Community owes a deep debt of gratitude to the projectors and editors of this Book as well as to its wise-hearted patrons—The Right Hon. the Earl of Reading the Right Hon. Lord Rothschild the Right Hon. Lord Bearsted the Right Hon. Sir Alfred Mond Bart. M.P. the Right Hon. Sir Herbert Samuel, Sir Edward Stern Sir Adolph Tuck Bart. Sir Robert Waley Cohen Sir Stuart Samuel Sir Samuel Instone Major James de Rothschild ColonelS. L. Mandelberg J.P. and Messrs. Samuel Samuel M.P. Raphael Abdella Bernard Baron Henry Van den Bergh L. Levene-Davis Sydney Frankenburg Nathan Laski J.P., A.M. Landauer F. Millhoff Harold Mosenthal S.and Schneider &Sons whose encouragement and munificence alone rendered its publication possible." (Signed) J. H. HERTZ, Chief Rabbi.
