Honor Transport for Bialik when Body Goes to Palestine

Included in the group are Menachem Mendel Ussishkin, world president of the Jewish National Fund; Dr. Moses Gluecksohn, David Kahan and Samuel Cohen.

The Hebrew poet seemed to have had a presentiment of death. Before his last operation he told the nurse “hispallelu baadi weimru thelim” (have prayers said for me and have the Psalms read). Bialik died peacefully. His features are calm and there is no sign of struggle.
