Rufus Learsi (Israel Goldberg) Dies;
Eminent Historian, Authored Passover
Widely Accepted Remembrance Ritual

NEW YORK (JTA) - Funeral
services were held here Monday
for Israel Goldberg, prominent
American - Jewish educator and
journalist, known under the pen
name of Rufus Learsi, who died
aged 76.
Born near Bialystok, Russia, he
was brought to this country by his
parents when he was a child. He
was educated in the New York
public schools and received his
degree from City College. After
teaching history and foreign lan-
guages in the city high schools, he
turned to writing.
Among his most prominent
works were "Fulfillment, the Epic
Story of Zionism," "Israel: A His-
tory of the Jewish People," "The
History of the ews in America,"
and a number of children's books.
He worked with both the Jewish
Education Association and the
Jewish Education Committee,
founded and edited "World Over,"
and was editor, among other pub-
lications. of the Zionist Quarterly
and the Jewish Forum. He was the
co-author, with Dr. Samson Ben
derley, of the three-Volume "Out-
line of Jewish Knowledge."
One of his most prominent
contributions was the authorship
of the prayer to the martyrs of
the Warsaw Ghetto which has
entered the Jewish liturgy. The
prayer is now recited in Jewish
homes each year as part of the
Seder on Passover.
Israel Goldberg was for many
years among the major guides in
public relations activities in this
country. He headed the publicity
department of the United Palestine
Appeal for a number of years,
after a teaching career. He was
the associate of Louis Lipsky,
Emanuel Neumann and other lead-
ing Zionists. He authored many
