K. was born on 8 July 1885
in Lovitsh (Lowicz), Warsaw region, Poland, into a
strongly Orthodox family. In his youth he was renown for
being a prodigy. He learned with the Sochaczew gaon R'
Avraham Bornshteyn. At age seventeen he obtained a
teaching permit, later he began to write Hebrew. Due to
the persecution of the Chasidim he made his way across
Russia as a Hebrew teacher. The first fictional work he
published was in "Hd hzmn", "Hmeurr", "Htsfirh" and in
Yiddish in "Der freynd".
In 1907 he settled in Lodz
and became a permanent collaborator of the "Lodzer
nakhrikhten", then of the "Lodzer tageblat", and here
often wrote about the Yiddish theatre. In the summer
Julius Adler's troupe staged Kh.'s one-acter "Shvigers".
On 26 June 1915 in Lodz's Skala Theatre (Directors
Adler-Serotsky) there was staged Sam Lyudner's
dramatization of Kh.'s novel "Lodz in krig, oder, der
lodzer zapasner soldat avraham milner". In the 1915-16
season Kh. wrote the political monologues, which the
actor Hershl Yedvab had read out aloud.
After the world war he
immigrated to America, where he was in journalistically
active, having written theatre reviews in New York's "Yidishes
tageblat" and translated Eziz Damet's drama "Yosef
trumpeldor" 18-20, 22-24, 26, 1928. The same play, in
the translation of Itzhak Bukhner, was published in "Altneyland",
Warsaw, 1925, 4-0]. Later Kh. had the same play adapted
(with the consent of the author) as a partnership.
