    NEW YORK (Mar. 10)
    More than 2000 people attended funeral services yesterday in Manhattan for Rabbi Isaac Tendler. The rabbi, who died last Friday at age 79 in Suffern, N. Y. after a long illness, was the spiritual leader of the Kominitzer Synagogue on the Lower East Side of New York City for 57 years. For the last few years be lived in Monsey, N. Y. Among those who delivered eulogies was the Talmudic sage, Rabbi Moshe Feinstein.
    Tendler came to the United States from Lithuania in the early 1920s. He was in the first graduating class of Yeshiva University, which ordained him in 1923. As a young rabbi, Tendler was designated spiritual leader of the Kaminitzer Synagogue, named after the town in Lithuania where he and many members of the congregation had emigrated from.
    Tendler was a teacher for many years on the Lower East Side, having taught at the Congregation Bchurel Chemed for over 50 years, and at the Rabbi Jacob Joseph School for over 40 years. In addition, he was chairman of the executive council of the Union of Orthodox Rabbis for the last 26 years.
