      Obituary
      -----
      On Tuesday evening, March 27, the "Grand Old Man of Cambridge Jewry," Mr. Jacob Kazis, breathed his last at the Beth Israel Hospital. The late Mr. Kazis was one of the most honored and respected Jews of the city. As a profound scholar of Hebrew lore, he became the leading spirit in the Hebrew educational renaissance in the city, and the Cambridge Hebrew School stands as a monument of his contribution to the city. He was always actively associated with the Congregation Beth Israel, the oldest synagogue in the city, and was upon his death president of that institution.
      Mr. Kazis was respected for his honesty and impartiality. As a striking tribute to his memory, the Jewish school children were given permission to leave their public school classes on Wednesday and recited the ancient Hebrew prayers as the cortege passed. Hundreds of Jews and Gentiles crowded the Congregation Beth Israel to pay their last respects to this great man.
      The deceased is survived by a wife and four children, Dr. Harry, Israel J., Sarah and Abraham.
