English novelist; born at Buk, Germany, Sept. 10, 1871. He went to England with his parents in 1883, and was educated at the City of London School and Cambridge University. He was appointed secretary of the Great Synagogue, London, in 1894. He has published several novels and volumes of short stories, almost all dealing with Jewish life and character, among them "A Handful of Exotics" (1897); "Daughters of Shem" (1898); "Lesser Destinies" (1899); "Sons of the Covenant" (1900); and "Strangers at the Gate" (Jewish Publication Society of America, 1902). "In Years of Tradition" (1897) and "The New Galatea" (1901) have been his chief attempts outside Jewish lines.
