Several thousand residents of the Bronx witnessed the ceremonial installation at the Congregation Kehillath Moishe, 1532 Hoe Avenue, the Bronx, of the Scroll of the Law donated to the congregation by Attorney General Albert Ottinger in honor of Rabbi Moses Epstein, Chassidic “Rabbi of Ozerow.”

A parade from the Hoe Avenue synagogue to the Congregation Ain Jacob, 1426 Minford Place, took place Saturday night preceding the installation ceremonies. The Torah was carried under a canopy while the marchers sang religious hymns. Attorney General Ottinger, Judge Gustave Hartman and Rabbi Epstein were among the speakers.
