Moshe Kohn, an American-born reporter and editor at The Jerusalem Post for over 30 years, died Monday at age 81.
"Moshe used his tremendous fount of Jewish and general knowledge to imbue his journalistic work with a depth and thoughtfulness rarely seen elsewhere," said Post managing editor Calev Ben-David. "He was also a true gentleman who was a joy to work with, always ready to selflessly help and encourage colleagues, especially younger ones such as myself."
Kohn, who lived with his wife Barbara for over 40 years in Kiryat Hayovel before moving to Efrat last year, was also a pillar of Jerusalem's Anglo modern-Orthodox community. He would frequently invite new immigrants from the neighborhood's absorption center for Friday night dinner, often conducted Shabbat services at the nearby Nofim retirement home, and three years ago organized a popular "Rosh Hodesh" club.
"Moshe was a man who stood for principles in everything he did and never compromised his beliefs or his personal relationships," said long-time friend Max Wile.
If you Google "Moshe Kohn," you'll find links to some of recent articles, all of which are well worth reading. The rest of the Post's eulogy is worth reading too.
Zichrono l'vracha. It most certainly will.
