Hank Rosenstein,
Played In NBA

New York/JTA — Hank Rosenstein, who
played for a mostly Jewish New York
Knicks basketball team and was a member
of the National Jewish Sports Hall of Fame,
died Feb. 27 in Boca Raton, Fla., of heart
failure. He was 89.
Rosenstein, 6 foot 4 inches, played in
the frontcourt and was one of eight Jewish
Knickerbockers when they played the
Toronto Huskies in Toronto on Nov. 1,
1946, in the debut of the new Basketball
Association of America. He scored five
points in a game won by the Knicks, 68-66.
The BAA merged with the National
Basketball League in 1949 to form the
National Basketball Association, and the
NBA considers the Knicks-Huskies game
its first.
Rosenstein was traded to the
Providence Steamrollers, then helped
the Scranton Miners of the American
Basketball League to championships
in 1949-50 and 1950-51. In the latter
season, he led the team in scoring with

an average of 11.7 points.
He later became a coach in the semipro
Eastern Pro League.
Rosenstein, who also starred at Boys
High School in Brooklyn and City College,
was inducted into the Jewish Hall of Fame
in 1998 and the New York City Basketball
Hall of Fame in 2007.

Bill Would Honor Miep Gies

Washington/JTA — A bill honoring the
life of the woman who hid Anne Frank's
family and salvaged her diary is wind-
ing its way through the U.S. House of
Representatives.
The non-binding resolution seeking to
honor the life of Miep Gies is sponsored
by Rep. Mary Jo Kilroy, D-Ohio, and has
60 co-sponsors.
Gies helped to hide the Frank family
from 1942 until they were turned in by
an unknown informant in August 1944.
Gies discovered the diary pages and
saved them in her desk for Anne's return.
When Anne's death in Bergen-Belsen was
confirmed, Gies turned the documents

over to Anne's father, Otto.

The bill commends Gies, who died on
Jan. 11, just shy of her 101st birthday, "for
her bravery during the Nazi occupation
of the Netherlands and her dedication to
preserving the memory of Anne Frank
and the Holocaust."

the Guita and Jose Mindlin Foundation.
After retiring from the business world,

What is the most important component
• of burial preparation?

custom or a nice tradition, nor is it for hygienic purposes, but
an absolute requirement under Jewish law.

Hebrew Memorial Chapel serves the entire Jewish community by
bringing together our rich traditions with customized, sensitive services.
