MIAMI BEACH (JTA) —

fiction and article writer and
his byline was prominent in

the Jews in Spain, the 17th
18th and 19th centuries, and
Jewish life in the United
States.
His 100 novels were serial-
ized in Yiddish magazines
and newspapers, and about
25 of his novels were pub-
lished in book form and Isev-
eral were translated into
English.
His writings were widely
published in the Yiddish
press in Latin America, and

dish periodicals in Poland
and other European coun-
tries.
