This coming April 2020 will be a red-letter date in Zionism.

One hundred years earlier, in 1920 תר”פ, Arabs fell upon on the Jews of Jerusalem in the first organized act of murderous political violence against the goals of Zionism.


Led by the soon-to-be-selected Mufti of the city, Hajj Amin El-Husseini, Jews were beaten and then stabbed to death, mainly in the Old City.

Among the Jewish seven killed victims listed in the newspaper report was an American Rabbi it seems, Yehudah Leib Lozovsky or a phonetic variety of that spelling [Lazovsky].

No other information about the Rabbi is available. It would be fitting that he be remembered.

I am asking the readers of to assist with locating biographical information about the Rabbi. If you are aware of any details that could help, please contact: [email protected]
