The remains of the only grandchild of Zionist pioneer Theodor Herzl will be brought to Israel from the United States for reburial next month, a Jewish Agency official said Tuesday. Stephan Theodor Norman, known as the only Zionist descendant of Herzl, was buried in the Adas Israel Congregation's cemetery in Washington, DC, in 1946.

Rabbi Jeffrey Wohlberg of Adas Israel, a Conservative congregation, said it was only natural to rebury Norman's remains in Jerusalem.
