CRESPIN, ELIAS:

Rumanian rabbi, teacher, and journalist; born about 1850 at Eskee Sara, eastern Rumelia; he fled to Rumania after the Turco-Russian war of 1878. He was the first in the East to found a Judæo-Spanish journal in Latin characters, "El Luzero de la Paciencia," which had an existence of two years (1886-87) and which he edited at Turn-Severin (Franco, "Histoire des Israélites de Turquie").
