Moshe, son of Deborah and Eliahu Hochberg, was born on February 5, 1939, in Sokolow, near Warsaw, Poland, and immigrated with his parents to Israel in 1949. He attended the first elementary school in Lod, The children of Moshe were in the shadow of the events of the Second World War, forced escapes, hunger, cold, stress, and restless nights – these experiences were engraved deep in his soul, when the family was transferred from Poland to the Siberian steppes, In 1949 the Hochberg family immigrated to Israel and settled in Lod, where he was ten years old when he began his elementary school, and was soon discovered as a child He was gifted with sharp intellect and lucid thought, and easily overcame the material of the early classes, and his teachers soon became aware of his special talents and encouraged him to skip several classes and progress at his own pace. He was very Simcha to discover new worlds, and as a result of his financial situation, which made it difficult to finance his studies in the city, and because of his curiosity, Moshe preferred to continue his high school studies in Mishmar And continue to develop among the children of the kibbutz . This decision, too, had something of that inexhaustible hunger for discovering a new world in close proximity and depth. While still in elementary school, he joined Hashomer Hatzair and became an active member. He had extraordinary vitality and enthusiasm for the realization of any new and useful idea. His open, energetic nature liked all his friends and soon he was able to assimilate in his new society as though he had grown up in it and lived there ever. He loved the life of the farm and its intellectual activity. His friends loved him, his pranks, his valor and his sense of humor, and knew how to use them acutely and naturally, which were special to him. He was an optimistic and joyful boy, even though his life was in difficult situations and pressing hours. He believed that he would succeed in overcoming obstacles if he wanted, and indeed wanted and almost always succeeded. The look in his blue eyes was bright and smiling and a flash of mischief flashed through him. Moshe remembered the years in Mishmar Ha’emek with a touch of nostalgia. For him these years were full of social and intellectual activity; For years in which he was exempt from all worries, surrounded by friends and friends, enjoying the understanding and openness of his teachers and mentors. Years sunlit, a light of wisdom and warmth in the bud. The intellectual activity, the debates on literature, politics, and sociology, areas of particular interest to him, promoted his development and the ripening of his talents. His interests were many, and his brother Shlomo said: “His personal inclinations were so varied and varied that it is difficult to mention an area of activity that was foreign to him.” In those years he devoted himself to his favorite occupation of reading, which he spent hours without knowing how time passed. Among his friends Moshe was active, energetic, an excellent initiator and a leader, with great seriousness and intrigue. He had a natural talent for acting and had an evening voice. He loved, and did well, sing and every party with him became a real celebration. In addition to his propensity for literature, history, and art, he had a special fondness for sport. He was a great man, ready to plunge in the sea and into the sea of life. Moshe was drafted into the Israel Defense Forces in mid-1956, after which he was assigned to the Signal Corps unit, during which he discovered an ulcer in his stomach, apparently due to the circumstances of his life as a child.Daughter of his education. In the course of his regular service, he studied evenings and nights in the framework of the IDF teachers’ seminar, and was aware of the burden imposed on his parents. After his release, he joined the teachers at the same elementary school where he had studied in his youth. Moshe was satisfied with the teaching work but complained about the lack of intellectual stimulation and therefore chose to re-occupy the classroom. He enrolled in general history and Hebrew literature at Tel Aviv University. His years of studies at the university revealed his inexhaustible resources, and Moshe worked and studied and was active in the framework of the student union and the Mapai youth movement, during which he wrote poetry, while his brother Shlomo noted that Moshe did not intend to publish his poetry. One of many he had. “On the side of sharp intellect and clear logic, he had the soul of a poet, he used to say that every poet has something of the child, because he has the ability to see the world through the primacy, During the course of his studies, Moshe became acquainted with Elana, who was to become a shepherd And the two married in mid-March 1964. After he was awarded a BA in general history and Hebrew literature and was certified as a certified teacher for high schools from the Department of Education at Tel Aviv University, Moshe decided to devote himself to his studies, and this time to acquire a lawyer’s license, and his studies were intensive and long-lasting, and he was able to instill a joy of life and joy in his surroundings. Thanks to his ambition, his stubbornness and his independence, he was ordained as a lawyer, and after years of study, various occupations and the replacement of his place of residence, Moshe and his wife established their home in Daughter of-Yam. Moshe won the tender for a position as an attorney in the State Comptroller’s Office, and in early 1973, Galia was born. It seems that only then did Moses begin his journey of life. At the height of Yom Kippur, Moshe was called to his unit in the Signal Corps. From time to time he would return to his house, to his wife and daughters, but he would be like another person – shut up and shut himself in his mother’s arms. Memories passed far, and current fears and tension cast a shadow over his soul. On October 27, 1973, the day the armistice was declared, Moshe died during his service and was put to rest at the cemetery in Holon, leaving behind a wife and two daughters, parents, brother and sister. “In his letter of condolences to the bereaved family, the commander of the unit in which Moshe served said:” His sudden death shocked us – his comrades in the unit and his commanders – with deep shock. “A tree in memory of the late Sergeant Moshe Harel was planted in the forest of the defenders of the Bar Kokhba Forest, near the Canadian Forest in the Jerusalem hills.
