Wiener, Shmuel Eliyahu
Son of Miriam and Joseph. He was born in 1900 in Rehovot, where he began his studies in the local Talmud Torah and continued at the local elementary school, where he completed his studies in the agricultural field of his family, and in 1920 he traveled to South Africa and returned to Israel nine years later. He acquired a piece of land for himself and planted an orchard there and continued his agricultural work, and at the outbreak of World War II he accepted the call of Yishuv institutions and enlisted in the British Army, where he served as a ground crew member and was seen as a good man and a devoted friend. On 17 Adar (16 March 1941), in the course of his duties, he fell and was laid to rest in the Chabi cemetery in Egypt. He left his parents, six brothers and three sisters, and his name was immortalized in the “Book of the Year of the Press,” in the book “The Book of Volunteerism,” and in the book “Yizkor” published by the Jabotinsky Institute.
