Moshe Becker was born in Vilna. He ran an old age home there.
He was a member of the "Poale Tzion" movement, a rabbi and an outstanding pupil.
In 1907 he came to the country with his family and went to the settlement of Har Tuv which had been settled by Bulgarian Jews who bought the village of ARTUF from the Christian church. He managed the farm belonging to Itzhak Leib Goldberg. There he kept the first "Herd Book" with a view to improving the cattle strain and raise the milk yield. The cattle farm he managed became so famous that even Mikve Yisrael bought its calves. He also pioneered cotton plantation in Magdele on the shores of the Sea of Galilee and managed the land belonging to Abu Shushe near Gezer.
In 1909 Moshe Becker settled in Rishon Le Zion where he received his farmland from L. Goldberg.
