YUDE-LEYB FOGEL (b. latter half 19th century)
            He was probably born in Berdichev.  He belonged with Moyshe Kleynman to the Berdichev association “Bene-tsiyon” (Children of Zion), which worked on behalf of the settlement in the land of Israel.  To that goal, he and M. Kleynman, under pen names, edited (ca. 1900) a series of Zionist pamphlets and notebooks, to which Sholem-Aleichem and Dr. Mandlshtam, among others, also contributed.  Separately, Fogel also published (using the same pen name) Yidish blut a refue, un biz vanen veln yidn in goles? (Jewish blood a remedy, and how long will Jew be in exile?) (Berdichev, 1898), 31 pp.  Further information remains unknown.
