Isiah Stanislaw Silberman, well known Jewish communal worker here, committed suicide in Vienna yesterday.

The news of his suicide made a deep impression in Warsaw Jewish circles as the late Mr. Silberman was a trustee of the Great Synagogue on Tlomacki and known for his philanthropies. He was 53 years old. An attack of nervous depression was given as the cause for his act.
