Hydrological engineer and entrepreneur Simcha Blass was born in 1897 in Warsaw, Poland, the second of five children. As a boy, his education consisted of both religious and secular studies, and early on he developed a strong interest in engineering and also became intent on settling in the Jewish homeland. At the age of 17 he began his studies at the Wawelberg-Rotband mechanical-technical institute. In 1919 he was drafted and spent 18 months as a private in the Polish Army. After his discharge, he completed his studies and obtained an engineering credential.
