Israel’s Foreign Minister, Abba Eban, who is also president of the Weizmann Institute of Science, at Rehovot, Israel, today sent the following cable to Meyer Weisgal, chairman of the Weizmann Institute executive council:

“Please convey to the family of Vera Weizmann and to the entire Weizmann Institute and the Yad Weizmann family, our deep sense of sadness and bereavement. Vera Weizmann’s presence lent nobility to the Rehovot scene. She embodied and communicated national memories of highest significance. Her vigorous and dignified personality will be thoroughly missed in our national life. My wife and I have lost a cherished personal friend, whose warmth and affection were given us in boundless measure.”
