            He was born in Vilkovishk (Vilkaviškis), Lithuania.  He was active in the Pioneer movement.  Until WWII he was the owner of a print shop in Vilkaviškis.  He also spent time collecting materials on Jewish life in Lithuania.  Some of his documents concerned with Napoleon’s march into Lithuania may be found in the documentary collection in Washington.  He authored a drama in three acts: Likht fun mizrekh (Light from the east) (Vilkaviškis, 1934), 64 pp. (a music scenario with music).  Since 1940 there has been no further information about him.
