Commenting on the death of George Leven, acting president of the Alliance Israelite, the newspaper Le Temps declares: “He dedicated his life to good and attached himself to improving the conditions of his coreligionist wherever they were miserable and developing schools where French culture and love of France were taught. His heart, which was cruelly affected by recent events, could not withstand them.”

A Government decree nominates Bloch-Laroque, honorary councillor of the Court of Cassation, as president of the honorary chamber of the same court.
