Rabbi Harold Saperstein, known for his work in political causes, died last Friday at the age of 90. The rabbi of Temple Emanu-El in Lynnbrook, N.Y., from 1933 until 1980, Saperstein was wounded by an Arab sniper during a 1939 visit to Palestine. In the 1950s he led what is believed to be the first National Federation of Temple Youth trip to Israel.
