World Mizrachi mourns the passing of our dear friend and legendary President Kurt Rothschild yesterday (Sunday). Kurt was ‘one in a generation’ with an unmatched love of the People, Torah and Land of Israel with his signature humility, unshakeable determination and exceptional menschlichkeit. Rabbi Doron Perez, Executive Chairman of World Mizrachi said: “Kurt was small in physical stature but was a giant of a man in his never ending contribution and commitment to כלל ישראל in general and Religious Zionism in particular. We are heartbroken and our hearts go out to his wife Edith, and children Lenny, Naomi, Michael and the extended Rothschild family at this time.” יהי זכרו ברוך
The funeral will take place today, Monday, July 18th, from Kehilat Yerushalayim Section of Har HaMenuchot cemetery at 1:00pm Israel time.
Founded in 1902, Mizrachi is the global Religious Zionist movement, spreading Torat Eretz Yisrael across the world and strengthening the bond between the international Jewish community and the State of Israel.
