Yekhiel Blank


He came with Lateiner and Mogulesko's troupe to Odessa in 1889and acted in the Marinski Theatre.

His best role in which he had great success was as "Yukel gbai" in Lateiner's "Dybbuk".

At the end the nineties he met me(?) in Argentina, where he and Avraham Neyman got together with "amateurs" and acted with them in auditoriums.

 [It is quite possible that Avraham and Yekhiel Blank were one person].
