Rabbi Aaron Samuel Tamares, the Rabbi of Mileiezyc, has died. Rabbi Tamares, who was 62 years of age, was one of the first rabbis to join the Zionist movement in its early days, and he won a great reputation under his pen name, Echod Harabonim Hamargishim, which he used over a large number of Zionist articles published in the Hebrew periodical, “Hamelitz”.

The Rabbi was also the author of a number of anti-war books, and he was known as an impassioned champion of world peace. Lately-Rabbi Tamares had come to be more identified with the Jewish Orthodox movement in Poland.
