M. was born in Odessa, Ukraine. She was the sister of Khalan-Halanov, one of the first Yiddish actors in Russia .

M. -- according to Jacob P. Adler -- completed a gymnasium, was intelligent with much artistic taste. She and Sophia Oberlander (later -- the wife of Jacob P. Adler) were among the first actresses on the Yiddish stage in Russia in 1878.

M. debuted in Odessa with Saul Veynshteyn in the the tradesmen's/craftsmen's hall as the "grandson" in Goldfaden's "Di babe mitn eynikl" and later she acted in "Shmenderik". Other information about her absence -- it's possible that shortly thereafter she had withdrawn from the stage.
