DCENES AT JEWISH FUNERAL.
Hebrews Excited Over the Burial of
a Venerated Rabbi.
Most extraordinary 7 sccnea took
place in Tunis yeniciWy on tho occa
sion of the burial of Mouchl Rorrcbl,
the late Grand Rnbbl of the Jews of
the protectorate, snys a Paris dispatch
to tho London Telegraph. Hebrew
traditions arc kept to tho letter of
Hie law In Tunis, especially as regards
funerals. About 5,000 Jews of nil
classes 'thronged round tho funeral
car, endeavoring to toiifkthe body
of tho dead dignitary of the syna
gogue. The crush was cnormouB,-ncl
ns the body had several times fallen
out of Its place the police took chargo
of tho funeral, and In strong force es
corted the ear to tho cemetery. Here
further' trouble arose, as,a lot of peo
ple wantecl to throw enrth Into tho
plllow-caso which was to bo placed
under the head of t,he grand rnbbl in
his tomb. The police succeeded, with
great dlllleulty, in preserving order,
nnd with the help of fifteen voluntary
grave-diggers, the body, In Kb whlto
shroud, was taken from the tar nnd
consigned to tho earth, lleforo It won
carried down there was a tlnnl tw sit
of people, who wanted to kiss tho
s-iioud. Many also struggled to duty-end
Into the grave for tho purpose of
saluting the totpse for the last time,
but they weio driven back by sheer
force. During tho bin lal, which was
quickly effected, owing to the cu-wels,
women in tho cemoteiy pierced tho
nlr with their heart-rending walls.
Tho explanation of these extraordi
nary scenes is thnt tho Jews of Tunis
consldcicd that their grand rabbi bad
cHed a saint, or, as tho phrase Ih
among Catholics, In tho odor of. sanc
tity, and thnt whoevei helped to carry
tho body, kissed It, or even toudiecl
the shroud of flue linen enveloping it,
received pardon for sins committed
and ptnmtses of heaven.
