In this contract between one Alter Moshe Eliezer Stabinsky, longtime resident of an old age home in Tel Aviv, and the Va’ad ha-Yeshivoth, it is agreed that for the sum of 800 Israeli pounds, the Va’ad ha-Yeshivoth will attend to Stabinsky’s funeral arrangements “after 120 years” and the recitation of Kaddish. Rabbi Zalman Sorotzkin (1881-1966) was the son-in-law of R. Eliezer Gordon, rosh yeshivah of Telz, Lithuania. Known as the “Lutzker Rov,” after the name of the community he served in pre-Holocaust Poland, Rabbi establishing the Va’ad ha-Yeshivoth (Committee of the Yeshivoth), he also served for a period of time as chairman of the Mo’etzeth Gedolei ha-Torah of Agudath Israel.
