Download PDF for this date

Abraham ben Abraham was the Jewish name given to Lewis Aldine, an Italian, who has been admitted to the Jewish faith. The operation took place at the East New York and Brownsville Hospital. In applying for admittance to the Jewish faith, Mr. Aldne, who is a lawyer, said he was engaged to marry a Jewish girl whose parents insisted on his becoming a Jew. He stated also that he had been raised among Jews from childhood and felt akin to the Jewish people and religion.
