Dr. Shlomo Levy Dead at 75

Funeral services were held last week for Dr. Shlomo Levy, a veteran employee of the Jewish National Fund, who died here at the age of 75. Dr. Levy was born in Yugoslavia and came to Palestine in the 1920s after earning degrees in philosophy and biology at European universities. He was involved in building the JNF’s main office in Jerusalem but spent much of his career representing the JNF and the Zionist movement abroad. Dr. Levy served for many years as JNF director in Yugoslavia and during World War II organized JNF and Zionist activities in Australia. After the war he was a member of the management at the JNF’s head office here.
