Funeral Rites for Dr. Miller, Zionist, Held

Download PDF for this date

Funeral services were held Friday afternoon for Dr. Isaac Miller fifty-eight, well known East Side dentist and lifelong Zionist, at the Memorial Chapel, Seventy-sixth street and Amsterdam avenue. Dr. Miller was badly injured several years ago in an accident, which necessitated the amputation of his left hand, from which he never fully recovered.

Dr. Miller, who was born in Wilno, came to the United States as a young boy and after great financial difficulties managed to finish his studies. For twenty-five years he maintained an office on the lower East Side. He was very active in many charitable causes and in the Zionist movement.

About eight years ago, Dr. Miller left for Palestine on a tour. Returning to the United States he made up his mind to liquidate his affairs here and move to Palestine with his family, but was prevented by ill health.

He is survived by his wife and two daughters.

Services were held under the auspices of the Greater New York Aid Society in whose work Dr. Miller participated actively for many years.
