Download PDF for this date

Kaddish – which is rarely, if ever, recited for non-Jews – will be said for the late President Roosevelt at a memorlal meeting to be held here tomorrow under the auspices of all Jewish national institutions.

Chief Rabbis Isaac Herzog and Ben Zion Usel will officiate at the services, and both will deliver eulogies for the late world leader. Prayers composed especially for the occasion will also be recited.
