In addition to various businesses, he owned the Peoples and Perry theaters in Cleveland, which presented entertainment in Yiddish in the Eastern European Jewish neighborhood of Woodland. He became involved in Cleveland politics as a ward boss in the 16th (later the 12th) ward of Cleveland, a heavily immigrant neighborhood. He married Sarah Trilling in 1888.
