Resource Toolbox

Russian journalist and novelist born in Pereyaslav, government of Poltava, 1859. At the age of twenty-one he became government rabbi of a small town in the neighborhood. Later he settled in Kiev, where he still (1905) resides. Rabinovitz is a constant contributor to Hebrew periodicals. He has written the following Hebrew novels: "Shimele," in "Ha-Asif" (1889) "Shoshannah," in "Ha-Ẓ efirah"(1889) "Don Kishot mi-Mazepewka," in "Pardes" (1892) and "Gemar Ḥ atima," in "Bet ' Eḳ ed" (1892). His silhouettes, which first appeared as feuilletons in "Ha-Meliẓ " (1889-90), afterward separately under the title "Temunot u-Ẓ elalim" (St. Petersburg, 1889-90), rank with the highest of their kind in Neo-Hebrew literature.

Rabinovitz has written also a Russian novel of Jewish life called the "Mechtatel," which appeared in "Yevreiskoe Obozrenie" for 1886. But he is chiefly known by his contributions to Judæ o-German literature. His two best-known novels are "Stempenyu," in which an untutored musical genius is the hero, and "Yosele Solovei," in which the adventures and tragic life of a phenomenal young "ḥ azzan" are described. Both stories were published in the year-book "Volksbibliothek" (1889). Rabinovitz has written many other novels and criticisms, the best known among the latter being: "Kinderspiel," St. Petersburg, 1887 "Reb Sender Blank," ib. 1888 and the sensational review of the works of N. M. Shaikevitch (Shomer) which he published under the title "Shomer's Mishpaṭ " (Berdychev, 1888). The first volume of his collected works was published by the "Volksbildung" society, Warsaw, 1903.
