Efrim Broder
(Sher?)

B. Gorin portrayed him as such: "Later [after the first Broder] there had appeared Efrim Broder. He was more intelligent. He earlier was a prayer leader, and he had a good voice. He put together a small company, and he had entertained the world with songs, that he used to portray Chasidic life. He understood himself, that the songs were monitored with Chasidic [heoyut] and movement."

Dr. Y. Shiper tells of his characteristics: "....He was associated with the Chasidic circles....[Ongetsundn] by Yakovski's [aroystretungen] he had put together..."

Sam Ludvik portrays him as a Jew with a long beard. He comes from Brody, where also there is a gravestone on his grave.

Sholom Podzamtshe, who performed with him, says that [bamt] he was named Efrim Sher, before he became a prayer leader and folksinger, and he was a tailor.
