Rabbi Feinstein


New York (JTA) — Tens of
thousands of Jews converged on
the Lower East Side last Mon-
day to pay their last respects to
Rabbi Moshe Feinstein, one of
the world's outstanding auth-
orities on Jewish law and author
of multivolume texts of re-
sponsa and talmudic commen-
tary, who died last Sunday at
the age of 91.
At least 50,000 mourners
packed the streets outside
Tifereth Jerusalem, the yeshiva
where Feinstein served as dean
since he came to the United
States in 1937. His body was
flown to Israel for burial at Har
Menuchot cemetery in Jeru-
Feinstein served as president
of Agudas Israel of America
from 1966-1980 and had headed
its presidium since the early
1950's. He also headed the
organization's Moetzes Gadolei
HaTorah (Council of Torah
Sages) which he chaired since'

1962; and from 1968-80 was
president of the Agudas Harab-
bonini (Union of Orthodox Rab-
bis of the U.S. and Canada).
He was a member of the rab-
binical board of Torah Umes-
crah, the National Society of
Hebrew Day schools, of which
he served as vice president and
was a member of the Board of
Governors of Chinuch Atzamai/
Torah Schools for Israel.
Feinstein's prolific responsa
to halachic queries from all over
the Jewish world from 1950-75
were published in the seven-
volume Igroth Moshe (Letters of
Moshe). He also published, be-
tween 1948-79, 13 volumes of
Talmudic commentary, Dibroth
Moshe (Moshe's Statements).
Feinstein was born in 1895 in

was reared in an atmosphere of
rabbinic scholarship and respon-
sibility. Following his ordination
in 1921, Feinstein assumed the
rabbinate in Luban, Russia, a
position be held until 1936. But
for more than 10 years he was
under house arrest in Luban for
religious activies. Through
diplomatic intervention, he
suceeded in obtaining an exit
