The remains of Prof. Abraham S. Yahuda, famed Orientalist and Biblical scholar who died at Saratoga Springs last year, are being taken to Israel for reburial aboard the Israeli vessel S.S. Elath, which sails from here tomorrow. In Israel the remains will be buried in the national cemetery in Jerusalem. Funeral arrangements are being prepared by a committee of government leaders, scholars and noted civic leaders, headed by Premier David Ben Gurion.
