History Biographical
A descendant of an illustrious Sephardic family, Dr. Bension was a brilliant scholar both in religious and secular studies. An active Zionist, he travelled all over the world on behalf of Keren Hayesod. He wrote numerous articles on Arab-Jewish relations, on poetic and philosophical topics and on mysticism. His work on the "The Zohar in Moslem and Christian Spain" was acclaimed by Jews and non-Jews alike. Dr. Bension married Ida Seigler, a Montrealer, in 1925.
