Yehoshua Radel-Feldman, well known under the pen name of Rav Binyamin, died here yesterday at the age of 77. A philosopher, writer and publicist, Mr. Radel-Feldman was among the earliest Hebrew journalists in his native Poland, Britain and in Israel.

Mr. Radel-Feldman, who came to Israel in 1908, was one of the founders, together with the late Dr. Judah L. Magnes of Brith Shalom, a movement designed to reconcile Jews and Arabs in Palestine. Editor and author of several works, he also translated the diaries of Theodor Herzl into Hebrew.
