Moshe Dworkin, a devotee of Jewish culture and a board member of myriad Jewish organizations, died last week in a nursing home in Belmont, Mass. at the age of 68. He had been suffering for two years from complications from a stroke.
Involved in media — both as a professional and a volunteer — Dworkin was the founding publisher of Moment Magazine, president of the National Book Council and a board member of the Jewish Telegraphic Agency. He was the founder of the publishing consultant company M. Dworkin and Co. He later went on to found an Israeli overnight courier service.
“My father had no one pet cause, since the Jewish people was his cause,” said Dworkin’s eldest son, Benjamin. “ He loved Jewish culture…literature, dance, music and song.”
Dworkin is survived by his wife Susan of Brookline, Mass., his sister, Alezah Weinberg of Scottsdale, Ariz.; his son Benjamin and daughter-in-law Amy Winn-Dworkin of Teaneck, N.J.; his daughter Jenny of Somerville, Mass.; and his son Aaron of Cambridge, Mass.
