Download PDF for this date

Rabbi Mordecai Solomon Friedman, known as the Rabbi of Bujany, and scion of the Sadigora rabbinical family, arrived on the Majestic on Monday. He was greeted at the pier by a delegation of his Chassidim.

A special delegate was sent by the Rabbi’s admirers to meet him at Cherbourg. The Rabbi of Bujany is a cousin of Rabbi Isaac Friedman who died in New York last week.
