Download PDF for this date

Rabbi Aaron Menachem Guterman, the “Radziminer rebbe,” who died at Radzimin last Monday from pneumonia, left a fortune estimated at 500,00 zloty (about $96,000), the Jewish press here reported today.

The famous Chassidic rabbi died childless. Now, according to the local press, scores of his closest relatives have secretly assembled at Radzimin to distribute the fortune he amassed among themselves.
