Jacob Rosenheim, one of the founders of the Agudath Israel World Organization, and one of that Orthodox organization’s topmost leaders for many years, died here today at the age of 95. Some of the greatest rabbis in the world had acknowledged him years ago for his profound scholarship as “our teacher.” Born in Germany, he has been living in recent years at Bnei Brak.
