Aron Alperin

New York (JTA) — Aron
Alperin, an author and jour-
nalist who edited Yiddish
newspapers in Poland, Paris
and New York, died May 4 at
age 87.
For the past 25 years, he
was an editor of two of the
last Yiddish newspapers in
the U.S., the Jewish Morning
Journal and The Day.
Born in Lodz, Poland, Mr.
Alperin was city editor and
editorial writer of the Lodzer
Tagerblatt from 1920 to 1926,
and until 1928 the Lodz cor-
respondent of the Warsaw
Yiddish daily, Hajnt.
He moved to Paris and was
editor-in-chief of the Pariser
Hajnt from 1928 to 1939.
From 1930 to 1940 he was
staff correspondent for the
Hebrew daily Haaretz,
published in Tel Aviv.
Mr. Alperin came to New
York in 1941, escaping with
his family when France was
occupied by the Germans. He
joined the staff of The Day,
becoming associate editor in
1946, and stayed on in that
capacity when it merged with
the Morning Journal in 1951,
until it discontinued publica-
tion in 1970.
Mr. Alperin was chairman
of the executive council of the
Zionist Organization of
France from 1936 to 1940,
and a member of the ad-
ministrative council of the
Zionist Organization of
America from 1947 to 1952.
