N. was born in 1876 in New
York, America. As a child he traveled to Braila

began to act in Lemberg (Galicia) with the actors Leyzer
Tsukerman, Segalesco, Treitler, Cesar Greenberg, Schorr,

In 1901 he came to Argentina
and there acted in Yiddish theatre.
B. Gorin writes about him:
"At the end of of his nineteenth year he was far from
home, turning up in Buenos Aires a poor actor of
Goldfaden's cheer. One of them was Yekhiel [Avraham]
Blank, a comic, and the second Avraham [Aaron] Neyman,
lover and singer. They have represented dilettantes and
have begun to act in the halls. Some members of the
company were such that they lived on account of fallen
women and of the white slave traders in [gevaksn] as
well as [heyvn?] and has become big enough and rich
enough to support a theatre."
In 1913 N. had to --
according to B. Gorin -- abandon the theatre due to the
attacks of the press against him and Morris Moshkovitsh
taking over the theatre.
In 1917 N. again was a
director, of the Olympia Theatre in Buenos Aires.
