Programme of a Jewish Demonstration
to Thank His Majesty's Government for Their Declaration in Favour of the Establishment in Palestine of a National Home for the Jewish People.
London, English Zionist Federation, [later facsimile copy of the 1917 original].
Noted are the honorary speakers at the demonstration, which included, as expected, the Chief Rabbi, The Rt. Hon. Herbert Samuel, the future president Chaim Weizman, but also, surprisingly some 'Arab Representatives' - Shakh Ismail Abdu-al-Akki and M. Wadia' Kesrawnai.
The future national anthem of the State of Israel - 'HaTivkah' is printed in Hebrew on the last page of the programme.
8vo, 4 pp., small marginal tear to first leaf. Facsimile copy of the original programme, including copy of pencil marks and signature of James Rothschild on p.2. Text in English and Hebrew.
