A memorial to the late Louis Arthur Mischkind (Hebrew Union College, ’18), who was Rabbi of Congregation Beth Emeth of Wilmington, Delaware, at the time of his death in July, 1929, following an accident, was unveiled on Sunday, June 22, in the presence of a large gathering of friends and members of the family, at Mount Carmel Cemetery, Brooklyn, N. Y.

Rabbi J. Max Weis of New York City, a classmate, officiated at the exercises, at the opening of which he read the following inscription on the monument, which Dr. Judah Leon Magnes had penned as his tribute to Rabbi Mischkind, who had been a fearless advocate of many liberal points of view on religious and social questions: “He seemed to me to be passionate and eager for a good cause.”
