12. A unique prayer order for the three religions that was Published on the occasion of the British conquest of Jerusalem. December 9, 1917

FORM OF SERVICE TO BE HELD IN THE COLLEGIATE CHURCH OF ST. GEORGE THE MARTYR, JERUSALEM ON DECEMBER THE NINTH - The Day of the occupation of Jerusalem. " To thank and glorify g-d ... and send his blessing on the holy land in the future" Rare prayer order composed for the three religions in Hebrew, English and Arabic on the occasion of the British conquest of Jerusalem on December 9, 1917.

The occupation of Jerusalem by the British was one of the climaxes in the campaign on Sinai and Israel during the First World War. Jerusalem surrendered to the British Army without a fight on December 9, 1917, after the Ottoman army withdrew from the city the night before. General Edmund Allenby entered the city two days later, on December 11, officially accepting the surrender. This ended the Ottoman regime's 400 years of rule over Jerusalem and Israel, and the British rule over Israel began. The event expressed to the British the desire to renew Christian control in Jerusalem, which ended with the defeat of the Crusaders and their departure from the Land of Israel centuries earlier. The British conqueror considered his occupation a formative step for the three religions . Therefor, when General Allenby entered the gates of Jerusalem with his officers He got off his horse and walked by his foot through the Jaffa Gate out of respect for the Holy City of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. In his official declaration, Allenby even expressed this attitude: " Do not fear any of you in light of the experience you had of the departing opponent ... Because the followers of the three great religions of mankind have affection for your city, and its land is sacred in the prayers and pilgrimages of devout people of these three religions for many centuries Therefore, I have informed you that any sacred structure, a memorial, a holy place, a temple, a traditional site, a sanctuary, a religious heritage site, or a traditional place of worship of all forms of all three religions will be preserved and protected according to the existing customs and beliefs of those It is sacred."

After the conquest of the south, Loyd George ordered General Allenby to conquer Jerusalem " as a Christmas present to the Christian world" (which took place two weeks later), the bells of all the churches in Rome rang for a full hour, and in other places, and on the other hand, Jerusalem Jews lit a first candle Of Chanukah that evening and congratulated her on the resurgence that appeared " Bayamim Hahem bazman hazeh."

Against this backdrop, the prayers before us compiled in the three languages. Alongside confession, the sanctification of G-d, and the tenets of the faith, are words that refer to the great event: The Lord's Prayer will remember the souls of the heroes who sacrificed their souls for the great thing in the Holy Land and everywhere: " Everyone who gave their lives to liberate the Holy Land" Peace on earth, great and great peace that the world did not know from ever" . And a solemn prayer to thank the G-ds for victory and salvation: " We glorify you and thank you for the victory we have instilled in this great and terrible war of recent times ..." .

Rare prayer. one copy in the National Library, and only one copy in the Center for Jewish History, NY. Not seen in recent years. See also Christies auction - London, April 21, 2016.

In the Czar's army, about half a million Jews served, the highest number of Jews in World War I armies and many of them fought in the front against Jews in the German and Austro-Hungarian armies. Some even volunteered for combat positions to emphasize their loyalty. During the war the Russians had no suitable plans for partial mobilization, and on July 31, 1914, Nicholai made the fateful move and ordered general mobilization.

The war began with heavy Russian casualties and lost territory. Nikolai felt that it was his duty to lead his army personally, taking on the role of commander-in-chief of his uncle, Grand Duke Nikolai Nikolaevich Jr. (in September 1915) after the loss of the Russian part of Poland. On December 22, 1917, Soviet Russia signed a ceasefire with the Center Powers and actually left the war.

"Havatzelet: a letter time for Beth Israel" - one of the pioneers of Hebrew journals in Jerusalem. Started in 1863 by Israel BK, and from 1870 to 1911 edited by his son-in-law, Israel Dov Frumkin. Initially, it was published twice a month. In October 1871, it became a weekly.

The paper put Jerusalem and its affairs at the forefront, and was founded as a competitor to "Lebanon", which was the newspaper of the old settlement people, while the Havatzelet represented the followers of the Hasidim and to some extent the Sephardim in Jerusalem. In every issue of the newspaper, a section was devoted to the settlement of the country, with information on the development of the settlement. The paper had a clear tendency to instill a sense of security and prosperity and to attract settlers to Israel, Thus, a series of travel stories of Joshua Yellin were published (from issue 19 of Year 2), articles by Rabbi Yehuda Alkalay due to the commandment of the settlement of Eretz Yisrael and a sharp polemic against Aharon Yehuda Leib Horowitz Who exhorted Jews to emigrate to the United States and against discrimination in the "Haluka".

All the printed material was on Frumkin's mind and influence. Among the regular writers in the paper were Avraham Lunz, Shlomo Buber, Avraham Bar Gutlover and more. Some were not residents of the country, and sent articles from abroad. The newspaper was the first Hebrew newspaper in Israel to be published in a long period of time - more than forty years. It was named after a street in central Jerusalem near Zion Square, 'Havatzelet Street'.
