Meth and Groper


Yakov Meth had a costume business in New York (America), as did Avraham Groper (brother of actor Yosef Groper).

In 1911 both united and specialized in costuming the productions of the Yiddish theatres in New York and its surrounds.

The firm (in New York on 83 Second Avenue), most of the time, set up in each Yiddish theatre and was set up to especially make costumes for each new production.

Since Meth's death, Groper became the actual [bel-hbit] of the firm.


M E. from Avraham Groper.
