Quebec Government Finances Publication of Manuscript on Judaism

The Provincial Government of Quebec has awarded a $2,500 grant to Rabbi J. H. Heimlich of Montreal to aid in publication of a manuscript left by his father, who died in the Auschwitz internment camp in 1944.

The manuscript left by Rabbi Joseph Heimlich was studied by specialists in Judaism who consider it to be a substantial contribution to Jewish culture and to contemporary philosophical studies. His son is now revising the manuscript and preparing it for publication. Rabbi Heimlich was a noted scholar in the Jewish community of Hungary before the war.
