Description du livre Azriel Press, Philadelphia, 1930. First edition. Octavo. Printed on rectos only. 14 photographic illustrations on 7 leaves at end. Original blue printed wrappers stating "Revised Proof Printed as Manuscript". Annotated by its original owner on three pages internally and on front wrapper: "Private not for publication. Handed in to the Commission in a further revised form." The main text of this Memorandum on the Western Wall, was prepared on behalf of the Jewish Agency for Palestine by Cyrus Adler, who was then serving as president both of New York's Jewish Theological Seminary and the Dropsie College for Hebrew and Cognate learning in Philadelphia-as well as editor of the Jewish Quarterly Review-managed also to publish a Memorandum on the Western Wall. The memorandum had been prepared, as its subtitle announced, "for the Special Commission of the League of Nations on behalf of the Jewish Agency for Palestine." In his introduction Adler noted that Article 14 of the League's "Mandate for Palestine" had instructed the Special Commission "to study, define, and determine finally the rights and claims of Jews and Muslims at the Western or Wailing Wall at Jerusalem." "The status of the Western Wall in Jerusalem's Old City during the British Mandate was riddled with controversy with both Jew and Arab claiming rights to the site as a place of worship. Particularly contentious was the status of the desire by the Jews to places objects of worship at the site. A ten-month build up of tension over these disputed rights culminated in an attempted attack by an Arab mob on the Jews in Jerusalem on August 23rd, 1929. The outbreak of violence spread to other parts of the country and on the following day, the Arabs murdered some seventy Jews in Hebron. In the week of bloody violence that ensued, there were attacks in Tel Aviv, Haifa and Safed. Before the week had passed, large detachments of British troops were brought in, many were arrested (both Jew as well as Arab), before order was restored. In the wake of the violence, a Special Commission of Inquiry was set up by the League of Nations to resolve the 'Problem of the Wall.' The present Memorandum, prepared by Cyrus Adler on behalf of the Jewish Agency for Palestine, examines the connection of the Jews to the site of the Western Wall from an historical context, demonstrating a Jewish worshipful presence there dating back a great many centuries" (Kestenbaum).
