Funeral services were held yesterday at the Riverside Memorial Chapel for Rabbi Mychael Winkler, Chief Rabbi of Copenhagen, who died here while on a visit for the purpose of raising funds for the education of Jewish orphans in Denmark and Palestine.

Rabbi Winkler died of heart disease, following an attack a fortnight ago. He succumbed in his sixty-second year at the Beth Israel Hospital.

For seventeen years he was the Chief orthodox Rabbi in Copenhagen. A widow and two children in Copenhagen survive.
