In 1904 B. founded in
Lemberg possibly the first Yiddish newspaper in Galicia
"Tagenblat." In the newspaper he published a great
number of articles and critiques about Yiddish theatre.
Staying in close contact with the Yiddish actors, B.
founded (together with Julius Gutman, Matityahu Thur and
Norman Glimer) in 1908 the "Goldfaden farein (Goldfaden
Association)," that his goal is to "protect the
intellectual and economic interests of the stage
artists." In the association there were outside actors
and scriptwriters who also joined as musical members in
the chorus. B. is also, for a certain amount of time,
the president of that association.

of the "Goldfaden Association," and henceforth made the
first attempt in Europe to publish the photographs
and biographies of Yiddish actors.

Yiddish theatre, and as such there was staged in the
same year in Aged's "Clinton Street Theatre," B.'s four-act drama, "Der rebe in feyer," his four-act dama "Tsvishn libe un toyt," and his three-act drama "Froy
In 1919 he staged in the
