From 5 April 1930, S. began to perform in English in scenes from Shakespeare's "Shylock" in Kitt's vaudeville circuit, with a great success. Here he received an invitation from Argentina's Yiddish theatre director Adolf Mide to come to Argentina, where he directed with the local troupe "Tuviya der milkhiger", "Jew Suss", "God of Vengeance", "The Blacksmith's Daughter", "Hard to be a Jew", Hinkemann", "The Ghost", "Kidddush Hashem", "Konkurentn", "Shabse Tsvi", and "The Seven Who Were Hanged". The visit was an extraordinary success.
