Download PDF for this date

Rabbi Rudolph I. Coffee, of Temple Sinai, this city, has tendered his resignation after twelve years of work.

The reason for his resignation was that he needed a long rest, Rabbi Coffee stated. He said he had no future plans.

“I will attend the religious fellowship in Chicago next month,” he declared. “After that I don’t know what I shall do.”

Rabbi Coffee has long been active in Jewish welfare and religious work in northern California. He was chairman of the Jewish Committee of Personal Service at state institutions.
