Leib Davidsohn, prominent orthodox Zionist of Warsaw and for many years a member of the Executive of the Warsaw Kehillah died here at the age of 72. The funeral took place Monday.

Davisohn bequeathed his large private library to the Hebrew Library of Jerusalem. He also left his estate in Rehobo###th, Palestine, to his son on the condition that his son settle there. Davidsohn’s son is married to a daughter of the Russian General Rudizki.

Davidsohn requests his friend Podlischewski to use his efforts towards eventually removing his body also to Palestine.
