Israel Prize-winning geographer Moshe Brawer dies at 101

The Israel Prize-winning geographer and cartographer Moshe Brawer, who compiled dozens of atlases and helped delineate Israel’s border with Jordan, has died at 101.

Brawer’s world atlas is widely used in Israeli schools.

“He was involved in setting borders, and among other things was among those who determined the border with Jordan. He was a lecturer in university and people from around the world would call him to consult on these issues. He was a man of great stature,” Brawer’s daughter, Orit Brawer Ben David, tells the Ynet news site.

Brawer is survived by his wife, Rina, 91, four children and eight grandchildren, according to Ynet.
