Biographical data -- unknown.

In "Kol mbshr", (39) from 1869 there was found a correspondent under the name of "Simchas Torah", where he studied with an old meskhilim Shteyger in the shtetl N. beym Dnieper on a Simchas Torah day.

When Goldfaden had founded his theatre in Rumania, A. was there, and making a deep impression, which the theatre had created, A. wrote for the local theatre a great review, which he had published in a special booklet under the name of "Bmt yshkhk u gye-khzyun"(?) Salon "Pomme Verde" [that was the name of the theatre garden "Pomul Verde"], [bkrt mat kruah = visit the author who sees?] Avraham Hgdshuni --lbni kht [16, 30 pp.].

No printer is specified, but it is evident that it was printed in Rumania in the year 1877 or 1878.

A. knows that in the good and bad moments of performing, on the positive and negative pages of the plays, and it is apparent, that the author has in general drkh-eretz farn theatre, and for his [shepfer = shepherd], Goldfaden, especially.

The booklet is a precious reality, and he found himself but in several getseylte libraries of Jerusalem, Vilna and New York and by Noakh Prilutsky, who brought the booklet citations in the "Bikher-velt" (Warsaw, 1923, 3-4). From the citations it is seen, that the true notes of the author were only given in the dedication of a poem in the beginning of the booklet.
