Rabbi Irving Koslowe, the prison chaplain who led two U.S. Jews convicted of spying for the Communists in their final prayers, died Dec. 6 at the age of 80. Koslowe said Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, who were executed in 1953, attended services together while in prison, but he was not sure if it was for religious reasons or because their attendance allowed them to be in the same room.
