Leon Gildin

Leon H. (LEIBLE) Gildin was born in the Bronx into a Yiddish speaking home. (His parents spoke Russian if they did not want the kids to understand.) He remained active in the field of Jewish education and has had many articles published in magazines and newspapers over the years in his efforts to see that the accomplishments of the Yiddish secular movement not be forgotten. His latest effort is a book of Yiddish poetry translations entitled The Poems of H. Leivick and Others.
