            Hailing from Russia, he was active in the labor movement in Russia and in London.  In 1906 he immigrated to the United States, worked as a tailor, and was well-known among New York anarchists.  He managed a dramatic circle which put on one-act plays concerning Jewish working life.  Until 1915 he published impressions of laboring life in Fraye arbeter-shtime (Free voice of labor), later (until 1917) in Glaykhheyt (Equality)—both in New York.  He was the author of: Unzer heym, a stsene fun dem arbayters leben in 1 akt (Our home, a scene of laboring life in one act) (New York, 1912), 20 pp.; Tsvey velten (Two worlds) (New York, 1914), 24 pp.; Di finstere nakht, ertsehlung (The dark night, a story) (Ekaterinoslav, 1909), 26 pp.  He returned to Russia after the revolution and should have been living there.
