The doyen of Glasgow’s Zionist movement, Denis “Bonchy” Cohen, has died at the age of 93. His son David, president of the UJIA and a member of the Jewish Leadership Council, said: “For him, charity was what you did. If you have it and others do not, it is your responsibility to share it with care and common sense.”
Mr Cohen, the youngest of seven, was known as “Bonchy” from the age of two for his curly hair, and the affectionate nickname stuck.
