Rabbi Ezekiel Abramski, of Sluck, who was recently released by the Soviet authorities after he had been sent to Siberia after the big Minsk affair of 1930, when a number of Rabbis in White Russia were arrested by the Ogpu and were for a time under sentence of death, causing an outcry all over the Jewish world, was yesterday inducted as Rabbi in the Spitalfields Great Synagogue, “Machsike Hadath”, in London.

Chief Rabbi Kook, of Palestine, was Rabbi at this synagogue before he went to Palestine to take up his present position.
