Son of Idel and Yaakov Tuvia. He was born in 1890 in the Cube region of the Ukraine. In 1891 he immigrated to Israel with his father after his mother and some of Joseph’s brothers and sisters died of cholera and a fire that raged in the town. Joseph spent his childhood in Metula, in the home of his daughter Miriam, his brother Meir, and her husband Meir Yampolsky. He excelled in his studies, and at the recommendation of his teacher Yitzhak Epstein was sent to continue his studies in Jerusalem. After one year of study at the Lemel Teachers’ Seminary, he was forced to stop his studies because of the deterioration in the family’s economic situation. Upon his graduation, Yosef went to Egypt and there he made a living by running an agricultural farm. Upon his return from Egypt, he returned to his family in Metula and joined the kibbutz, and worked as a laborer with his relative Jakob Goldberg. In 1907, a cooperative of six members was organized to develop agricultural lands south of Metula, most of them in Tel Hai, and Yosef was among them. In his remarks on Joseph at the time, Zechariah Hayut wrote: “Here he underwent days of suffering and heroism, and here his character was exhausted. He was evident in his deeds, courage, and fearlessness in the face of dangers that threatened him at the beginning of his career. In 1908 Yosef received the right of peasantry in the new settlement of Beit-Gan, near Yavne’el. In Yavniel, Yosef cultivated his fields for several years and became part of the village life. At the same time, the Hashomer organization was founded. Joseph often participated in the pursuit of bandits, who used to attack the woods in the fields, and excelled in bold feats. In the meantime, the young couple set up an orderly farm in Gan-Gan, but very late Joseph left his fields in Gan-Gan and took care of the guards – first in Poriah and then in Rishon Letzion and son of Shemen, and finally in Menahemia. After leaving Menahemia, he founded the “Magen” Association for the Protection of Southern Settlements in 1915, in which Hashomer was not active, Ruhama, Ekron, Be’er Tuvia and Gedera. They lived in a trifle, ate in line with the peasants’ homes in their settlement, guarded them, and for a certain period even transferred one pair of shoes, from the guard on the day to the guard at night. In 1916 when he was in Be’er Sheva on his work, he was given a note by Avshalom Feinberg, who was sitting there in prison after being caught by the Turks trying to cross the desert and reach Egypt. In the note, Yosef was asked to visit Avshalom in prison and during the visit the prisoner asked him to announce his arrest to Na’aman Belkind, his cousin in Rishon Letzion. Yosef fulfilled this mission and Avshalom was transferred to a prison in Jerusalem, where he was released on the intervention of Aharon Aharonson, who testified that Avshalom Feinberg had acted according to his instructions, in search of locusts. From Absalom, Joseph learned of the existence of the Nili underground, whose purpose was to collect intelligence information about what was happening in Palestine, especially the movement of forces of the Turkish army, and to deliver it to the headquarters of the British forces in Egypt to help them conquer the land and liberate it from Turkish rule. The espionage and information gathering activity of some of his friends in Hamagen. After Ahronsohn left Nili abroad, Avshalom Feinberg decided to go to Egypt through the desert to renew contact with the British command, and he chose Joseph Lishansky as his companion and on their way they were attacked by Bedouin or Turkish guards near Rafah. He returned to Israel on the British ship “Managam”, which arrived at night near Atlit beach and from there to the beach by boat, and upon his return to Israel, Yosef, Sarah, Aharonson, and Naaman Belkind went to the head of Neil “Y.

Naaman Belkind was caught in the desert on his way to Egypt and Joseph went on a mission to try to work for his release but returned on his heels when it became clear that the Belkind family deal with it. Joseph, who was wanted by the Turks, hid in the mountains east of Zichron Yaakov and Yitzhak Halperin brought food and water to his hiding place. After three days in hiding, Josef Karkur met three members of Hashomer who were heading north in a wagon. Their task was to transfer gold coins to the Hashomer committee, after the Political Committee and the central institution of the Jewish Yishuv at the time feared leaving them in the possession of the source of the money with the arrest and interrogation of the Nili members.Joseph decided to go to Lebanon to hide there, , Who was stationed in Tel Adash, where he changed his clothes, and the two were set on fire, and was shot in the shoulder by Hashomer personnel who feared that he would fall to the Turks, and if he was interrogated and tortured he would give details about the association and its members.
