Rabbi Avraham Moshe (Aba) Dunner, the longtime executive director of the Conference of European Rabbis and a leading figure in European Jewry, has died.
He had been seriously ill since shortly after Passover.
Dunner was one of the most prominent activists for the cause of Orthodox Judaism in Europe. His father had been the head of the Orthodox Beis Din in the United Kingdom.
Dunner was a founder of Lo-Tishkach, an organization dedicated to creating a database of Jewish cemeteries in Europe.
