            He was born in a town in Kielce district, Poland, into a poor family.  He studied in religious elementary school, yeshivas, and later through self-study acquired secular knowledge.  For a time he was in preparatory training for work on a kibbutz, and later he lived in Warsaw and maintained himself through unskilled labor.  He was active among Jewish anarchists.  He published a volume of poems entitled Memento mori (Remember you shall die), with a foreword by the author (Warsaw, 1938), 146 pp.  Aside from poetry written in the motifs of love, pain, and suffering, this book included a cycle entitled “Khalutsim” (Pioneers) in which the author expressed the yearnings of youth in Poland who were prepared to become pioneers in Israel.  Subsequent information about him remains unknown.
