G. was born on 27 July 1886 in Iasi, Rumania.

His father was a tailor while at the same time a cantor.

He sang with cantors and worked as a tailor.

He lived next to the family Rozenshteyn, the late actors. There developed in G. a love of the theatre, and when Kalmen Ebell came through in force, G. traveled with his "[Fruit removal=Oprikhtn glut] theatre."

G. had the opportunity to act with the prominent powers of the Yiddish stage, who guest-starred in Rumania, and he was engaged yearlong by the directors Itsikl Goldenberg, Ashkenazy and Kaner, and for the last nine years for Ziegler.


Sh. E. from Moshe Gutman.
