            He was a newspaper publisher, born in Suvalk (Suwałki), Poland, the son of Kasriel-Tsvi Sorezon.  He emigrated to the United States in 1876.  He studied to be a lawyer.  From his youth, he was tied to his father’s Yiddish newspaper, and after the latter’s death, he took over (with his brother-in-law Leon Kameyka) Yidishes tageblat (Jewish daily newspaper) and Yudishe gazetten (Jewish gazette).  For a short time, he also published Di yudishe shpayz-gazet (The Jewish food gazette) in New York.  He died in New York.
