Description

Front: A pair of oversize tablets with the Ten Commandments on them are in the background of a large group of people. The group appears to be armymen and civilians, consisting of both men and women, stand in a row with the flags of allied nations behind them. There is a table with three chairs, the men in those chairs facing towards the Ten Commandments. Below them are a group of cantors dressed in all white with hats and tallis on, singing. Back: A glued-on news release describing the event in faded paper. New York, N.Y.
