Rabbi Menahem Kasher Dies

JERUSALEM (JTA) —
Rabbi Menahem Kasher,
one of the foremost Jewish
scholars of this century,
died last week at age 89.
Rabbi Kasher, born into a
Hasidic fainily in Poland,
achieved a remarkable
reputation as a young man
for his scholarship and writ-
ing. In the years im-
mediately following World
War I he edited a Torah
periodical called "Degel
Hatorah" ("Torah Flag") in
which many of the leading
rabbis of Europe regularly
contributed.
In the late.1920s he came
to Palestine, upon the in-
struction of his Hasidic
leader, the Rabbi of Gur,
to establish the first Hasidic
yeshiva here, Sfat Emet.

It was then that Rabbi
Kasher conceived the*
idea that was to become
his life's work. By the
time of his death 87 vol-
umes had been published
but it is still not quite
finished. However, Rabbi

MONUMENT COMPANY

In retirement, he re-
mained as busy as ever, and
took a close interest in the
Institute of Jewish Affairs,
the research arm of the
World Jewish Congress. A
few months ago he chaired a
conference in London on
Soviet Jewry attended by
many of the Western
world's most eminent
Sovietologists.

Mr. Schapiro's work, pub-
lished - first in 1960, was
"The Communist Party of
the Soviet Union." Revised
in 1970, it remains the de-
finitive work on that subject
in any language. The
American Academy of Arts
and Scieces made him an
honorary member in 1967.
