Jacob Dinezon

Jacob Dinezon (1851?-1919) was a successful and beloved 19th-century Eastern European Yiddish novelist and writer who championed Yiddish as a literary language and befriended every major literary figure of his day, including the three classic writers of modern Yiddish literature, Sholem Abramovitsh (Mendele Moykher Sforim), Sholem Aleichem, and Isaac Leybush Peretz. Credited with writing the first bestselling novel in Yiddish, Jacob Dinezon, like Charles Dickens, championed the poor, oppressed, and downtrodden, especially children. Though he used his pen to expose the hypocrisy and injustice in shtetl society, his stories reveal a deep love and commitment to uplifting and enlightening the Jewish people.
