Download PDF for this date

A moving tribute was paid to the late Senator Chief Rabbi Jakob Niemirower in the Senate today by former Premier Argetoianu.

Speaking as President of the Senate, Argetoianu declared that Dr. Niemirower came of an old rabbinical family and was possessed of the tact and tradition of the ancient rabbis in making his presence in the Senate agreeable and valuable. Dr. Niemirower, he said, always found the correct expression and had succeeded in adapting the activity of his people to the national movement. He concluded by declaring that the Chief Rabbi’s memory would remain forever with the present Senate.
