A singer and actress. Born in Bessarabia. Place and date--unknown. Completed a Romanian state school for music and played in Bucharest and across the province. In 1945 she recovered from the deportation.

Julian Schwartz remarked:

"Very sympathetic human being with a trained voice. She spoke in a Bessarabian Yiddish voice. A cordial colleague. S. wrote for her own couplets, others, among them the operetta 'Dem shusters tekhterl (The Cobbler's Daughter),' oysgebesert she used to perform with literary mornings, which the troupe used to give on various opportunities. She had great success in Bucharest and across the country in the title role of Goldfaden's 'Shulamis,' and in some operettas of the Romanian-Yiddish composer Gurevitsh, and the librettos of Y. Elenbogen."

In 1947 she wandered away from Romania, visiting Austria, Czechoslovakia and other countries, and in 1948 during a birth she died on a ship on the way to South America, on a trip with her husband.
