Funeral services were held here yesterday for Rabbi Isaac Stollman, the noted Zionist leader and author. He was 86 years old.
Born in Russia in 1893, Stollman came to the U.S. in 1924. Settling in Detroit, he served as rabbi of Mishkan Israel from its inception, as rabbi of Stoliner Synagogue, as founder of Yeshiva Beth, Yehuda and founder of the Council of Orthodox Rabbis in the city. He also served as the dean of Orthodox rabbis of Detroit for 40 years and as the first president of the Religious Zionists of America. He immigrated to Israel in 1965.
Stollman was the author of the four-volume Minchet Yitzhak, a collection of philosophical and topical essays on the Torah. He also wrote many articles in the Yiddish and Hebrew press, and was a noted orator in both Yiddish and Hebrew.
