US WW2 Jewish Holy Scriptures

In a very good condition US Army Holy Scriptures Jewish Edition.
Printed in 1942 for Jewish soldiers serving in the US Army, this pocket-size Bible contains selections from the Hebrew Bible in the 1917 Jewish Publication Society translation. The selections were made by the Jewish Welfare Board, an organization that looked after the welfare of Jewish soldiers and supported Jewish chaplains in the US Armed Services. It opens with a letter from Franklin D. Roosevelt commending the reading of the Bible to soldiers “as an aid in attaining the highest aspirations of the human soul.”
