Sh. had, at the Moscow State Yiddish Theatre, produced the images of Moshe Gershenzon's play, "Hershele ostropoler," that through Benjamin Zuskin were performed in Kiev. In the theatre for the "Arbeiter-Yungnt=Young Workers", he produced several offerings that they performed for the artistic manager S. G. Novak.

At the end of August 1941, Sh. freely went away to the Front to protect his homeland, and in November 1941 he fell in the struggle against the Nazis.

His brother, Yakov, also was a painter, and their sister was an actress.
