H. was born circa 1878 in Krakow, Galicia, to a family of [khli-kodesh].

At the start of the twentieth century he came to London and there acted with professional actors in various clubs and halls, exhibiting a tremendous love for the stage.

H. always was industrious, prepared for the [intrigantn-] and character roles, which he used to act and with a great seriousness to his performances.

During a test H. began manifesting signs of "craziness", and during Sukkot 1913[?] passed away in a mental asylum in London. He came to his eternal rest in the Manor Park Cemetery.
