Ben Zion, son of Esther and Yosef-Chaim Pinchasi, was born on 27.4.1913 in Jerusalem, and his family was known to the Bukharan community as “Baibaba,” translated into Hebrew as the well-to-do old man. He became a member of the “Bukharan community” throughout the country, and attended the “Tachkemoni” school and the “Kol Israel Haverim” school, where he was active in youth movements and sports organizations. At the age of 14 he left school and went to work, and his parents’ ambition was to become a merchant and he began to work in a trade house, but this profession did not suit him. He served as a mechanic in the British army somewhere in Israel and later as Solel Boneh as a mechanic in the Anglo-Iranian oil company in Abadan. On May 30, 1948, when he left the Hadassah clinic, he fell from a shell. He was buried in Sheikh Bader Aleph. He left a wife, Dina, and three children.
