A dramatic group of public services spanning the length of the Second World War, reflective of Anglo-Jewry’s sentiment. “Almighty God, banish envy and causeless hatred from the hearts of all people. Renew within them the spirit of justice and humanity, so that there be an end of desolating wars and persecution amoung the children of men. Hasten the days when the nations shall know that we all have one Father, that one God hath created us and spread the tabernacle of Thy peace over all the dwellers on earth.” The Nazi War Intercession Prayer (1940). “Oh God, Who art full of compassion, Who dwellest on high, grant perfect rest beneath the shelter of Thy Divine Presence to all who have bravely laid down their lives for their Countries; and to all the men, women and children of our land and the lands of our Allies, who have fallen victims to the fury of the enemy on sea or on land in their peaceful habitations or on the highways of cities.” Service of Praise and Thanksgiving for the Victories of the Allied Nations (1945)
