VAAD HATZALAH 1947 US ARMY BIBLE HOLOCAUST IDF ISRAEL Israeli WW2 Shoa Hebrew
This is a uniquely HISTORIC Bible printed in a truly limited edition under post world war 2 conditions! It is a Hebrew Bible printed by the Jewish Vaad Hatzala org which was helped by the US Army which was under the jurisdiction of General Eisenhower who gave his full consent to help in publishing this Bible.
In addition, this was a very special edition in so far as it was published specifically for the soldiers of the newly formed Israeli Defense Forces, ie the IDF. In the introduction of the Bible (in Hebrew), the Jewish Chaplain in charge of the She'erit Haplaita, Rabbi Samuel Sneig, writes a letter to the soldiers of the IDF, the "grandchildren of the Maccabees" as he puts it, praising them and reminding them that we Jews will defeat our enemies not by the power of the sword but through this Bible! A truly inspiring piece of history!
Bible is in Hebrew and contains the traditional Masoretic text plus Rashi and Targum aramaic text translation. Contains over 600 pages!
Condition: Very good, new cloth binding.
Measures: 7x5 inches.
