An enthusiastic welcome was accorded Britain’s Chief Rabbi, Dr. Immanuel Jakobovits, who arrived here today as part of his pastoral tour of Australia and New Zealand. The Chief Rabbi is scheduled to leave New Zealand on December 7 for the United States. Meanwhile, rumors circulating in London that Dr. Jakobovitz was considering resigning from his post were described as entirely unfounded by people close to the Chief Rabbi.
