Download PDF for this date

Reports of additional tributes to the late Israeli Deputy Premier Eliezer Kaplan and memorial services for him were received here today by the Jewish Telegraphic Agency from various parts of the world.

In Stockholm, memorial services at the Israel legation were attended by Israelis in the city as well as leading Jewish community and Zionist personalities. Speakers at the meeting included Dr. Abraham Nissan, Israeli Minister to Scandinavia, Zalman Shazar, Jewish Agency member who is here on a visit, and Chief Rabbi Wilhelm.

In London the Israel legation was officially closed, except that arrangements were made for persons who wished to express their sympathy for Israel’s loss to sign a special visitors’ book. The British Zionist Federation timed its memorial meeting to coincide with the funeral in Jerusalem. Chief speakers at this meeting were Israel consul Moshe Keren, Jewish Agency representative S. Levenberg, British Jewish leader Prof. Selig Brodetsky, Barnett Janner, M.P., and Zionist Federation chairman Janus Cohen.
