He was born in 1895 in Wolbrom, Poland. He was an active Zionist in his city and his great ambition was to immigrate to Eretz Israel. To collect money for the expenses of the trip, he worked for two years in a building factory in Duisburg, in the Rhine region. In 1921 he immigrated to Eretz Israel and stayed at the immigrants’ home in Jaffa. On the 23rd of Nisan 1921, nineteen days after his immigration to Israel, bloody riots broke out and the immigrants’ house was the first target of the Arab rioters. The pioneers who lived there barricaded themselves inside the house and managed to repel two attacks. In the third attack, Arab rioters were armed with rifles and the mob managed to break into the house and kill twelve of its inhabitants. Moshe was shot by an Arab policeman and killed on the spot. He was buried in a mass grave in the old cemetery in Tel Aviv.
