Kh. was born on 15 June 1863 in Amdur, Grodno Gubernia, Polish Lithuania.

He learned in cheders and in the Grodno Yeshiva.

Under the influence of Yiddish literature, mainly from A. M. Dik's books, he left the yeshiva at age fourteen and due to his poverty became a tutor. He studied some languages on his own, and afterwards became a teacher.

Kh. translated the operetta "Di veyse lilye", "Di nakht fun libe" by Valentinov, "Graf luksenburg", "Di freylikhe almnh", and "Faust", which were performed at the Vilna Yiddish Theatre.
