Download PDF for this date

Appointment of Dr. Abraham J. Rongy as chief gynecologist at the Hospital for Joint Diseases was announced yesterday afternoon.

Dr. Rongy, who took his medical degree in 1899 at the Long Island College Hospital, is the author of more than fifty papers on obstetrics and gynecology. He was one of the founders of the Jewish Maternity and Bedford Maternity Hospitals.

He has been attending gynecologist at Lebanon Hospital and consulting gynecologist at Rockaway Beach Hospital. He was a delegate of the American Jewish Congress to the international relief conference held at Carlsbad in 1924.

Dr. Rongy is a member of the American Association of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. He was born in Wilno, Poland, in 1878 and married Miss Fanny M. Fields in this city in 1914.

He was one of the original advocates of a World Jewish Congress. Last January, however, he wrote an article for The Jewish Daily Bulletin opposing the project on the ground that it runs counter to American democracy.
