            An agricultural engineer, he lived in Warsaw until WWII.  He was active in ORT (Association for the Promotion of Skilled Trades), especially in the field of developing agriculture among Jews in Poland.  For a time he was an instructor on a farm for pioneers in Grochowa, near Warsaw.  He served as editor of Populere virtshaftlekhe biblyotek (Popular economics library) in Warsaw.  He authored (together with S. Shalit): Gertneray un sederay (Gardening and orchard keeping) (Warsaw, 1936), 24 pp.; and Fi-tsukht (Animal breeding) (Warsaw, 1937), 24 pp.  Since the Nazi invasion of Poland, there has been no information about him.
