The Rev. Takeji Otsuki, a Japanese man cited as a great friend of Israel, died last Friday at 98. Otsuki was known as a great supporter of Jerusalem’s Hebrew University, and in 1997, a chair in Bible studies was established in his name at the school. In 1938, Otsuki said he felt a calling from God to work for the establishment of the Jewish state.
