Aaron Eisenberg, a veteran Chovevei Zionist, who came to Palestine many years ago from Poland, and was one of the founders of the important colonies of Rehoboth and Hederah and was head of the Agudath Netayim, died this morning.

Great crowds attended the funeral, which took place this afternoon at Rehoboth. Among those present were members of the Jewish Agency Executive and of the Vaad Leumi, of which he was formerly a member.
