Download PDF for this date

Rabbi Julius Silberfeld, spiritual leader of Temple B’nai Abraham, Newark, is acting as chaplain of the Citizens’ Military Training Camp at Camp Dix here. There are 1,300 boys here of whom about 225 are Jewish. They come from New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware. Rabbi Silberfeld, who holds the rank of Captain, conducts services Friday night and Saturday.

Funeral services were held in Newark, N. J. for Mrs. Sarah Hailperin-Radin, leading founder of the Daughters of Israel Home for the Aged, and its president during the past 25 years. A decade ago, upon the death of her first husband, Rabbi Baer Hailperin, who served Newark orthodoxy for forty years, she married Rabbi Max Radin of the same city. One of her sons is Rabbi Herman Hailperin of Pittsburgh, and a daughter is the wife of Rabbi Price, of Springfield, Mass.
