MENOAKH PRAGER (b. ca. 1910)
            He came from a town near Telts (Telz), Lithuania.  He studied in yeshivas.  In the early 1930s, just as he left the yeshiva and arrived in Kovno, he became a member of the young poets’ group.  He published lyrical poems in: Folksblat (People’s newspaper), Yudishe shtime (Jewish voice), the anthology Toyern (Gates) (1937), and the collection Naye bleter (New sheets) (1939) in Kovno.  Following the Nazi invasion of Russia in the summer of 1941, there has been no further information about him.

Sources: Toyern (Gates) (Kovno, 1937); N. Y. Gotlib, in Lite (Lithuania), vol. 1 (New York, 1951), pp. 1106, 1108.
