Z. was born in 1894 in Odessa, Ukraine.

In 1907 she came to Argentina and shortly thereafter married actor Isidor Zuckerman. She began her acting career as a soubrette in 1908 at the Rivadavia Theatre, debuting as "Berele Sheyngets". Since then she had remained on the stage and later switched to dramatic and mother roles and acted with Malvina Lobel, Samuel Goldenburg, Berta Gutentag, Rudolph Zaslavsky, Julius Adler, Avraham Morevski, Leonid Sokolov, Isaac Somberg, and other guest stars from North America.

On 11 January 1945 Z. passed away in Buenos Aires.

In the necrology of "Di prese", it was said:

"Clara Zuckerman was one of the planners of the old Yiddish theatre...At first, for a short time, Clara Zuckerman had...acted in the theatre and people had seen her with friends in the society, but suddenly she became sick, and despite the efforts of the doctors at the Jewish hospital, her sickness had been neglected to the point that it was not possible to save her."
