‘choneh,’ Familiar Figure Among American Zionists, Dies in Israel

Elhanan Mosdoff, the legendary “Choneh” who was known to virtually every Zionist leader in Israel and in the United States as a colorful character, was brought to his final rest today in a cemetery at Kibbutz Kineret, on the shores of Lake Tiberias. He died Saturday at the age of 80 at a Histadrut home for the aged near Tel Aviv. He was buried in a grave in a section where many other prominent Zionist labor leaders are interred, among them Berl Katznelson and Ber Borochov.
