(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

A denial of the report from Shavel that Rabbi Israel Rosendorf committed suicide in grief over the death of his wife, was received here.

It was disclosed that Rabbi Rosendorf, in his grief over the death of his wife, absentmindely mistook a low window for a door and stepped out to his death. His wife had been buried on the day the accident occurred.
