            She was born in Talne, Ukraine.  She published a book entitled Der mames laykhter, zikhroynes fun talne (Mother’s candlestick, memoirs from Talne) (Buenos Aires, 1960), 229 pp.  In this book which appears to be a family chronicle, there is reflected in a Jewish manner the small town life of the past.  She emigrated to Argentina in 1924 and died in Buenos Aires at the age of seventy-five.
