            He hailed from Asaviets (Osowiec), near the former Russo-German border.  He was a Hebrew teacher and orator.  In the early twentieth century, he traveled around Russia giving speeches on behalf of the settlement in the land of Israel.  He published impressions of Jewish villages in Lithuania and Zionist articles in Unzer leben (Our life) and Spektor’s Di naye velt (The new world)—both in Warsaw.  He authored a political pamphlet entitled Iber di apikorses (On heresy) (Bialystok, 1912), 96 pp., in which he attacked heretics at the time, “the slaves of their freedom.”  Other biographical details remain unknown.
