    Chasidic Rabbi Osias (Yehoshua Herschel) Eichenstein of The Naclath Jacob synagogue died early yesterday at the age of 47 in Mount Sinai hospital. He was famed as a Talmudic scholar. Rabbi Eichenstein, who lived at 1500 South Christiana avenue, was born in Austria and came to Chicago in 1922. He was a descendent of 12 generations of Chasidic rabbis, a mystical sect. He leaves his widow Brucha, a daughter Hermine, and three sons, Moses, Harry, and Abraham, all of whom, are rabbis. Funeral services will be held at 10 a. m. today in the synagogue.
