It is with great sadness that the Keren Hayesod family learned of Rav Achille Viterbo's recent passing in Jerusalem.
from l-r: Andrea Jarach, KH Italy Chairman; Rav Achille Viterbo z"l; Greg Masel, KH Director-General.
Rav Viterbo was the Chief Rabbi of the Jewish community of Padova (Italy) for decades and a dedicated friend of our organization
He made aliyah three years ago, after his wife passed away. On Nov. 5, 2016, the participants of the KH Italy mission honoured him at the mission's closing event, in the presence of Andrea Jarach, KH Italy Chairman, and Greg Masel, KH Director-General, by presenting him with a Certificate of Recognition declaring him a "Herzl Founder" (see pictures). May his memory be blessed.
