Former Premier Golda Meir and Mayor Teddy Kollek were joined by Knesset members and scores of Israeli journalists at funeral services here this afternoon for Ted Lurie, editor of the Jerusalem Post, who died in Tokyo last week at the age of 64 after suffering a stroke. Mr. Lurie, who joined the daily’s staff when it was founded in 1932 as the Palestine Post and became its managing editor in 1959, was buried in the Jerusalem Cemetery at Givat Shaul.
