The Grand Rabbi of Argentina, Saul Dabbath, died here yesterday at the age of 80. For nearly a decade he had served the Jews of this South American Republic. He came here in 1912 from Aleppo where he founded a noted seminary in 1900. From this seminary many rabbis went out to minister to Jewries in all parts of the world.
