Download PDF for this date

Orthodox leaders and representatives of the Yeshiva College gathered Sunday at the pier of the Fabre Line Brooklyn, where memorial services were held for the late Nathan Lamport and his wife, Sarah, before their coffins were taken aboard the steamship Patria for reburial in Palestine.

Dr. Bernard Revel, President of the Faculty of the Yeshiva College of which Mr. Lamport was president, Dr. M. S. Margolies, Rabbi Nachman H. Ebin and Dr. Leo Jung eulogized the late philanthropist.

Besides members of the family a delegation headed by Samuel L. Sar, representing the Yeshiva College, is proceeding to Palestine. The Patria will make a special stop at Haifa where the coffins will be taken ashore. Burial will be in the cemetery on the Mount of Olives.
