P. was born cir 1876 in Orla, Pinsk Gubernia, White Russia. His father was a local rabbi.

Peretz Hirshbein, in his book "Meyne kinder-yorn", made dedications in many places to him.

After his father's death, P. went away to London. He returned, learned in an Orla Beit HaMedrash to read while at the same time receiving a book education, and was introduced to Hirshbein and others with the Hebrew and Yiddish literature. He also by himself took to writing songs in Yiddish.

P. studied in Vilna and became a Hebrew teacher in Suchowola.

In "Roman-tseytung (novel-newspaper)" (Warsaw, 6, 7 and 8, 1908), there was published P.'s "Kinder, a lebensbild in drey akten". A short time after he published his drama, P. passed away, on 30 December 1908 in Suchowola.
