Bracha Weiner

**Editor's note: Needs work.

In "Arbeter tsaytung" (Journal, N'295, 1928), it was written:

"She was known in each city and shtetl of Bessarabia, Bukovina and Regat. An itinerant Yiddish actress, she was a homeless person, a movable undnitse? who had roamed about the earth for different, arranging here an amateur production, here a literary evening with whom she used to do declarations as Bialik, Peretz, and other poets. One would never guess that she is spending several weeks in a small town with a union troupe...a piece, and the production was a morally good one, it is a happy avekgeforn. That, which the production she did not raise even though so many, that it may have on for days to full antsuesns, she never placed, and at other times not."

But the need and then living well was bazint Bracha Weiner's ekshnutdikn idealist. An ill person, she went into the Czernowitz Jewish Hospital--her last trip--on the Shabbat on the 7 D.Ch. [1928] iz elter, from the necrology in the "Arbeter tsaytung", Czernowitz, N. 295, 1928.
