#onthisday, 1917, Mendel Portugali, one of the co-founders of Bar-Giora and Hashomer, dies following a self-inflicted gunshot accident at the young age of 29. Bar-Giora and Hashomer were the early organized Jewish defense groups established during the First and Second Aliyahs (1882-1914) - precursors to the Haganah / Etzel and eventually, the IDF.
