He was educated at the Rabbinical Seminary in Budapest and distinguished himself as a student by his poetical talent. Some of the medieval Hebrew poets, like Gabirol, Ha-Levi, Moses ibn Ezra, Al-Ḥarizi, and Immanuel of Rome, he made known by his happy renderings of their productions. He wrote also "Absalom," a Biblical drama; "Zsidó Költökböl" (1891), a collection from the Hebrew poets; and "Enekek Eneke" (1892); and he published a few volumes of lyric poetry.
