Rabbi Korff Ill

Grand Rabbi Jacob Israel Korff of the Congregation Adath Jacob at Mattapan is seriously ill at the Beth Israel Hospital here, where he was taken two days ago after suffering a sudden collapse at his home on Woodrow Avenue. Hospital physicians are hopeful that he will rally.

Rabbi Korff’s eldest son, Isaac, was ordained an Orthodox rabbi only two weeks ago. Friends of Rabbi Korff assert that the collapse was due to his having worried too much over the plight of the Jews in Germany.
