"He was popular among his fellow actors, known as a modest and serious person and a talented actor. However his love of young actors in America, in this time when he was here again acting on the stage was hard and connected? with great [egmt-nfsh]. After the last production of the Yiddish Art Theatre in Philadelphia in 1929, he was everywhere. From my point-of-view, why I am so sad, with tears in my eyes, said 'Heynt', located in the middle of the Yiddish theatre. If he leaves the theatre. 'I don't believe you; you have too much love for this theatre.' 'Father, if it was, you will never leave.' But he thought that he spoke.
The last year, being in Los Angeles, he often used to meet me. His great pleasure was to speak about the theatre, about his fellow members: Muni Weisenfreund, Yudel Dubinsky, Wolf Goldfaden et al. He was very sick in the last years of his life. His wife had preserved him, done everything she was able to do to keep him alive, but his sick heart had not survived."
