The Chief Rabbi of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Immanuel Jacobovits, attended here this week the inauguration of the losua Tova Synagogue which has been rebuilt since the earthquake last March. It is the first visit to Rumania by a British Jewish leader since Sir Moses Montefiore’s visit 110 years ago, the Rumanian Chief Rabbinate’s spokesman said. Jacobovits is currently visiting Rumania at the invitation of Chief Rabbi Moses Rosen.
