Moshek  Firer (pictured, left), born in Radom in 1883, was the son of Jakob Icek Firer and Fajga Brandla Austeryan. The Yizkor book "Sefer Zikaron Le-Kehilat Lomza" ("Lomza: In Memory of the Jewish Community") tells us that Moshe Firer was considered one of the "movers and shakers" in the Poaley-Zion movement in Lomza, Poland in the 1930s.  As one of its leaders, he was accused of being a Communist and was arrested, spending many months in the Lomza prison.

In 1935, a special counsel was formed in Lomza that oversaw the distribution of donations for the poor.  Moshe was one of the three people who ran the council.  The council invited every beggar and offered them a monthly payment of support if they would promise to stop begging on the street, which disgraced the city of Lomz
a.
