US: "Jewish Day - Century of Progress" exhibition medal, Chicago, 1933; by A. Carmi(?); struck in brass; weight: 10.9g; size: 32mm. Obverse depicts Star of David with Hebrew date for year "5693"; artist's name lightly engraved between the swirls of the design; on reverse image of Moses bearing the Tablets descending Mount Sinai and legend in Hebrew "And Moses Descended Unto the People". The "Jewish Day" is recorded by some observers as "the greatest Jewish spectacle ever staged in Chicago", and it took place on July 3, 1933, at Soldier Field, before more than 125,000 people. It was sponsored by the Jewish Agency for Palestine (the quasi-governmental authority of the Jewish community in Palestine), with the President of the Zionist Congress, Dr. Chaim Weizmann, specially invited as the keynote speaker. The musical-theatrical pageant "The Romance of A People" was the culminating event of the day (which took five years to plan) which commemorated Jewish contributions to the city of Chicago since its founding in 1833. The "Jewish Day" was one of around 24 such days planned by the Fair Committee to commemorate the contributions of various nationalities which comprised the city of Chicago - as the Jews identified themselves closely with Palestine, the Jewish Agency was involved in the organizations and hence the themes of the event and this token. In AU with some surface residue from coin holder.
