References to Durkheim in Jewish periodicals and newspapers are hard to
find. We are grateful to the late Etienne Halphen for having drawn our
attention to two such items, which relate to the death of Durkheim. Both of
them allude to Durkheim’s work on behalf of Russian Jews during the War.
Reference might therefore be made to two letters on the issue, by Durkheim
himself and by A. Lévy, the Grand Rabbi of France, discovered by Jennifer
Mergy and published with an introduction and notes by her in Durkheimian
Studies / Etudes durkheimiennes, 2000, n.s. 6: 1–4.
