Levy, John (1797–1870)

We regret to say that Mr. John Levy, J.P., aged seventy-two years, and an old and respected resident of Victoria, expired at his residence, Nicholson-street, on Monday last. The deceased gentleman arrived here in 1842, and was a member and promoter of the committee organised for the foundation of the Melbourne Hebrew Synagogue, Bourke street west. He also took considerable interest in the Jewish Philanthropic Institution, the foundation stone of which almshouses has been only lately laid. The funeral took place on Tuesday, the mournful cortege being followed by a large number of the Jewish and Christian friends of the deceased.
