The remains of two of Theodor Herzl’s children are expected to be flown to Israel for burial next week. Herzl, whose coffin was reburied in Jerusalem in 1949, had asked in his will that his children one day be buried in Israel. Israel’s Sephardi chief rabbi, Shlomo Amar, helped facilitate the burial, which long had been held up because Herzl’s son Hans had converted to Christianity.
