On the 18th of this month, the Lord has taken His faithful servant: Ábrahám Dob Singer, the rabbi of Modor. He was born on Pesach day in 1834 in Érmihályfalva. He visited the yeshivas of Kis Várda and Pozsony. He settled in Bazin until he finally moved in 1860 to Modor, where only 1-2 Jewish families lived at that time. In the year 1870 he was named the religion instructor of the state teachers' college, and the was entrusted with title of rabbi of the village afterwards. His general activities resulted in the raising of a beautiful temple and the walls around the cemetery. The funeral was a true expression of his popularity. The leadership of the city, the teachers and pupils of the lower and middle school and the teachers' college were present at the burial. The nearby settlements were represented by Izrael Frankl, the rabbi of Cseszte who eulogized him and called on the congregation of barely 25 members to provide for the widow and the three minor children of the rabbi. On these occasions we see the omissions of the national agencies in not having established a national fund for this purpose; this would be helping the rabbis and their employees as well as the congregations. We hope that this will be more successful than previous attempts.
