Sudden Death of B.L. Amdur
Leader Among Hebrews of This City, Successful Business Man
and Former Rabbi Has Passed Away After Short Illness.
B.L. Amdur died suddenly at the St. John Infirmary yesterday morning at 8 o’clock after having been ill for three days with pneumonia. Besides his wife, he is survived by one son and four daughters. The children are: Belle, Isadore, Mrs. I. Sydney Isaacs, Ada and Sarah. Mrs. Louis Dautch, of Buffalo, is a sister.
The news of the death of Mr. Amdur is a great shock to the community, as comparatively few of his many friends knew of his illness. The late Mr. Amdur was born in Dvinsk, Russia, fifty years ago and was educated in the Riga schools. Twenty-two years ago, he came to America, having accepted the call to officiate as rabbi at the Jefferson street Temple, Buffalo (N.Y.). There he ministered for fifteen years and afterwards was Rabbi at the Bnai Jacob synagogue of Hamilton (Ont.). He then came to this city and was rabbi at the Hazen avenue Synagogue until 1912 when he retired from the ministry and entered business life.
He was a talented musician of exceptional ability and conducted a music store in Union street until 1916 with considerable success. Mr. Amdur also was active in real estate ventures and carried on extensive developments at Eastmount, having erected several houses there.
In 1916, he initiated a business which, in a comparatively few years, he developed with remarkable success in that from the time of his opening of his first dry goods store in West St. John, he expanded his new business so rapidly that the expansion took place at the rate of one new store opened every year until finally he was operating two stores in West St. John, and two in the city, all located at strategic points in the commercial centre, and all prospering. Lately he adopted the business policy of consolidation and concentration and leaves as a great example of business achievement two large stores in the heart of the city. Probably, in recent years, Mr. Amdur's business success has not been excelled by any other institution in this city.
In private life, the late Mr. Amdur's noble character, intimate knowledge of politics, art and music and his genial, kindly manner was an inspiration to his family and won for him in the outside world a wide circle of friends, not only in St. John, but also in other parts of Canada and the eastern parts of the United States. He was held in high regard by the Canadian Jews, being recognized as one of the outstanding leaders and frequently represented this section in national Jewish conferences.
Locally he was idolized by his co-religionists and at the time of his death was president of the Jewish congregation of St. John. He was a member of Carleton Union; F& A.M., and also member of the L.O.O.F.
The funeral will take place from his late residence, 85 Elliott Row, at 3 o'clock this afternoon to the Carleton street synagogue, where services will be conducted by Rabbi Weiner. The funeral will be attended by delegations from the Masonic and Odd Fellows fraternities.
The funeral of B.L. Amdur was held yesterday from his late residence, 85 Elliott row, to the Carleton street Synagogue, where service was conducted by Rabbi Weiner. Interment was in Fernhill cemetery. The funeral was attended by members of the Masonic and Odd Fellows' fraternities, and many friends who deeply mourn the death of a worthy citizen.
