Download PDF for this date

Rabbi Moshe Blau, leader of the Palestine Agudas Israel, was buried yesterday. Tens of thousands of Jews attended the funeral. Yeshiva students marched before the coffin in the procession to the Mount of Olives.

Rabbi Blan died last week at Messiah, Italy, where he was removed from a ship en route to America. His remains were flown to Palestine by a British military plane.
