Three hundred Montreal Jews attended last night the Shloshim memorial service for Louis A. Pincus, chairman of the Jewish Agency and World Zionist Organization Executive, who died in Jerusalem a month ago, at the Chevra Kadisha Synagogue here. Rabbi Benjamin Hauer officiated. Henry Steinberg, on behalf of the Canadian Zionist Federation, Monroe Abbey, for the Canadian Jewish Congress, Gordon Brown, for the Allied Jewish Community Services and Thomas Hecht, of the United Israel Appeal, expressed the grief of the Montreal Jewish community at the untimely death of Pincus. The eulogy was read by Dr. Leon Kronitz, executive vice-president of the Canadian Zionist Federation, who was an old friend of the Zionist leader. A community Kadish was recited by all present at the conclusion of the memorial service.
