Studio portrait of Dovid Elhanan Moszczenik, a Jewish builder in Eisiskes.

Like others in the construction business in Eisiskes, Moszczenik, known as "Honeh the builder," worked only from May to September. During the long winter he studied religious texts in the old Beit Midrash (house of study). He was killed by the Germans during the September 1941 mass shooting action in Eisiskes.
