A copy of the Magna Carta,
dating from early 1300 is part of
the permanent display on Human
Rights at the Klutznick Exhibit.
Hall, in the Bnai
Brit h Building,
Washington, D.C.
The owner of this
historical item is
Justin G. Turner,
of Los Angeles, a
member of t h e
on Jewish Amer-
icana. Lind
This early copy of the charter
was established on June 15, 1965, at
Jamestown, Va., in connection with
the commemoration of the 750th
anniversary of the Magna Carta,
and the first day of the sale of the
Magna Carta Stamp by the U.S.
Post Office Department.
A special cachet available from
Bnai Brith depicts the artist's con-
ception of the scene of the signing
of the charter by King John, and
carries a statement regarding the
Bnai Brith's copy of the Magna
Bnai Brith's Committee on
Jewish Americana also arranged
an impressive exhibit entitled,
"Let Freedom Ring." This dis-
play begins with a reproduction
of the first page of the Magna
Carta, and ends with a copy of
the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
The purpose of this presentation
is to trace the growth of human
rights and liberties in America
from the beginning up to the pres-
ent time.
A number of items on display
are of specific Jewish interest,
such as the "Naturalization Act of
1739," granting citizenship to Jews
in the American Colonies; the
amended "Chaplaincy Law" of
1861, the "Jew Bill" of Maryland,
the "Haym Salomon's Offer of
Services to Continental Congress"
and the "Letter from George Wash-
ington to Newport Hebrew Con-
gregation" to mention just a few.
When the U.S. Post Office De-
partment heard about Bnai Brith's
unique possession, they requested
the loan of this Magna Carta for
the Jamestown ceremonies.
Bnai Brith then decided to issue
a First Day Cover to commemorate
this event and to tie in with its
All covers were cancelled at the
Jamestown, Va., Post Office on
June 15, 1965. The Post Office De-
partment could not waive the rule
regarding place of issuance of First
Day stamps and cancellations.
There was no other cancellation
device other than the one of the
Government. However, envelopes
had the statement in blue ink along
the lower edge of the cover:
Additionally, a rubber stamp
was used on request of Judaica
Collectors which read. "BNAI
Bnai Brith had 2,000 covers can-
celled on June 15th in Jamestown.
These were sold during the exhibi-
tion and will be sold thereafter as
long as the supply lasts. Covers
