Remains of Jacob Hellman, World Congress Leader, Taken to Israel

The remains of Dr. Jacob Hellman, late World Jewish Congress leader in Argentina, was brought here today for reburial. The coffin was placed in state on a flag-bedecked stand erected in front of the Jewish Agency building here.

Dr. Hellman was eulogized by Leon Lapaco and G. Feingersht, who accompanied the body from Buenos Aires as representatives of the Argentine Jewish community. Among the others who paid tribute to Dr. Hellman’s memory were Zalman Shazar, Jewish Agency leader, and Dr. Nahum Goldmann, co-chairman of the Agency, who cabled his regrets that he could not attend the funeral services.
