Yakov Moshe Goldenberg

Born on 27 July 1886 in Iasi, Romania.

His father was a tailor, and at the same time a cantor.

He sang with cantors and worked as a tailor. Living next to the Rosenstein family, the late actors, G. developed a love for the Yiddish theatre. And when Kalman Ebell came to search for talent, G. went with him into the "Oprichtn Glut Theatre."

G. had the opportunity to act with the popular actors of the Yiddish stage who had guest-starred in Romania and for many years was engaged by Itsikl Goldenberg, Ashkenazy, Kaner and Ziegler.

During the Second World War he was evacuated to Soviet Russia and died from hunger there.
 

Sh. E. from Julian Schwartz.
