Hebrew novelist in Russia, and pioneer of Jewish national revival. His restless spirit led him in his early youth to wander through the Jewish towns of Eastern Europe, and he later described his experiences in the foremost Hebrew novel of the period, The Wanderer on the Paths of Life, which criticized the existing Jewish educational and communal system. It inspired young Jewish people to strive for radical changes in Jewish society. (See also Hebrew Literature.)
