Memorial Resolution for Rabbi Judah Leon Magnes

The Fortieth General Assembly of the Union of American Hebrew Congregations notes with great sorrow the passing of Judah Leon Magnes, one of the most distinguished rabbis of our age, a son of the Hebrew Union College, a former rabbi of Temple Emanu-El, New York, the founder and first chancellor of the Hebrew University, the leader of the movement for good will between Jews and Arabs in Palestine, a man of prophetic stature by whose life and works the traditions of the rabbinate, as well as the spiritual traditions of all mankind were enriched.

His memory is a blessing that shall touch with Divine Grace generations yet to come.
