Moshe Wechsler was born in Yassi, Moldavia to a family of Hassidic rabbis. As a coin-changer, he became an expert in antique coins.
He was one of the first members of the "Hibat Zion" (Lovers of Zion) movement and in 1885 immigrated to Eretz Israel, settled in Rishon Le-Zion and became a winegrower.
To his credit are numerous public activities: signatory of the second Book of Regulations (1897); supervisor of the public bath and "Mikveh"; member of the Village Committee. In 1903 he served as head of the Committee.
