While a student at the Teachers Training Institute he became involved in revolutionary activities and after the assassination of Tsar Alexander II in 1881 he feared arrest and decided to emigrate to the United States. Cahan settled in the Lower East Side of New York City . Cahan worked in a factory and became involved in trade union activities. He also joined the Socialist Labor Party and was a delegate to the second and third congresses of the Socialist International in 1891 and 1893. Cahan became a journalist and worked for several Yiddish radical periodicals, including Di Zukunft and Di Arbeter Zeitung . In 1896 he published a novel, Yekl, a Tale of the New York Ghetto .

Biography, timeline, bibliography, and picture of the author presented by history student Ivan Lupov.
Abraham Cahan Biography Project by Ivan Lupov, Fall 2003 Abraham Cahan was born on July 7th, 1860 in the historic for Jewish culture town of Vilna, shtetl of Podberezya, Lithuania. He was the son of Schachne and Sarah Goldarbeiter Cahan, both Hebrew teachers, and the grandson of Rabbi Jacob of Nementchin. During his high school years, Abraham self-educated himself in various academic fields of study and enters the Vilna Teachers Institute. He graduated from the institute in 1881 with a teacher's diploma. As time went on he became affiliated with an anti-tsarist organization, which caused him strenuous tensions with the authorities. The tensions reached their peak when Abraham moved to a new school in the town of Velizh where he was suspected of illegal anti-tsarist activities. In an attempt to safe his life he decided to flee to Switzerland but circumstances lead him on his way to America. Cahan arrived in New York on June 6th, 1881. Initially he worked at a tin factory but with his intellectual background that period of his life lasted for very short time. Quickly he began teaching English at the Young Men's Hebrew Association and also he wrote his first article, published on the front page of the New York World. Again his political focus was directed against tsarist Russia and he pleaded for the release of young Russian revolutionaries. It was in 1890 when he was sent as a delegate to the Second International Socialist Congress and met with Frederick Engles, which confirmed his socialist ideology.

    Suggestions for teaching Cahan in the classroom.
    Abraham Cahan (1860-1951)
    Contributing Editor: Daniel Walden
    Classroom Issues and Strategies
    Students need to understand the following: (1) the Eastern European Jewish culture out of which Cahan came; (2) New York City as a fast-changing urban and technologized environment in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century; and (3) the nature of ethnicity in the context of the forces of Americanization. To address these topics, I require I. Howe and E. Greenberg, Introduction to Treasury of Yiddish Stories (for the European culture), and Moses Rischin, The Promised City: New York's Jews 1880-1920 , for the culture of New York City. For an introduction to Cahan as a realist, see Jules Chametzky, From the Ghetto and Sanford Marovitz, Abraham Cahan I also use the following films: The Inheritance (a documentary made by Amalgamated, 1964). The Distorted Image (a set of slides on stereotyping by B'nai Brith, Anti-Defamation League). The Chosen (film of Chaim Potok's novel). Hester Street (film of Cahan's novel, Yekl The Pawnbroker (film of Wallant's novel).

    This link leads to artifacts, teaching tips and discussion questions for this author. As a journalist and fiction writer, Abraham Cahan explored the social, cultural, and spiritual tensions of the Eastern European Jewish immigrant experience in New York. His sensitive treatment of the dual identities of Jewishness and Americanism, and of issues of accommodation and acculturation, made him an influential spokesperson for his community.
    Born into an educated, Orthodox Jewish family in a small village near Vilna, Russia, Cahan trained to become a teacher. By the time he graduated from the Vilna Teachers' Institute in 1881, he had embraced the socialist cause and had become involved in radical intellectual circles. Because of these connections, he came under suspicion for anti-Czarist activities and was forced to flee Russia for the United States. Upon arrival in America, Cahan settled in New York's Lower East Side, at that time a neighborhood inhabited mainly by immigrants, including a large population of Eastern European Jews. He soon became a leading figure in the community, lecturing on socialism, organizing labor unions, teaching English to other immigrants, and writing stories and newspaper articles in Russian, English, and

    Having to confront the imperatives of both Jewish and American culture, life was too hard for anything but the immediacy of need. Cahan’s text brings about within this context an important issue: is it marriage a necessity, as perceived by the Jewish tradition? The answer seems to spring from the implied belief that marriage represents the driving force of what is considered to be normalcy, of progress, of personal and spiritual fulfillment, of everything important in one’s existence, being the cumulus of both spiritual and material dimensions of life – that is of the two definitory components of Jewish culture. Therefore, in this short story getting married
    Relying only on their relatives and community friends, Nathan and Goldy suffer from the Jews’ habit of not socializing with the Americans. The ghetto wedding demonstrates this lack of social aspect, as the two protagonists discover they have no other support when those from their world are unable or too blasé and indifferent to attend this event. Because of poverty or assimilation the community is falling apart.

    13. Abraham Cahan
    Biography of the influential Yiddish writer, with particular emphasis on his career as a journalist.
    Abraham Cahan
    The 1890s were a dark era for many Jews. Between 1887 and the outbreak of World War I, more than 2 million Jews came to America. Most were poor and came from what are now Russia, Ukraine, Poland, Lithuania and other centers of Eastern European Jewish life. The new arrivals clustered in unsanitary tenements, worked long hours in sweatshops and open air markets, spoke mainly Yiddish and possessed few skills with which to enter the English-language labor force. They faced religious prejudice and the challenges of adapting to an unfamiliar environment. The Forward became a leading advocate for these Jewish immigrants. Named after the great Social Democratic newspaper in Berlin, the Forverts appeared on the streets of New York in April 1897, written entirely in Yiddish. Its first editor was 37-year-old Abraham Cahan (1860-1951). Cahan had clear ideas about the kind of paper he wanted to edit. He wanted the Forward Cahan made the Forward Forward A beacon for immigrant acculturation into American life, under Cahan the Forward never lost its pro-working class orientation or its thirst for social justice. What it did lose, inexorably was much of its Yiddish-speaking readership, which today is only a tiny fraction of what it was in the 1920s. The contemporary children and grandchildren of that earlier generation of Forward readers have emerged as American, and Americanized, Jewish leaders. Cahan would have been proud. The

He briefly served as American correspondent for various Russian periodicals, but soon gave this up when he discovered a growing immigrant audience responsive to his Yiddish lectures with their call to labor unionism and socialism.

    F lora was alone in the back parlor, which she had appropriated for a sort of boudoir. She sat in her rocker, in front of the parlor stove, absorbed in Little Dorrit . Her well-groomed girlish form was enveloped in a kindly warmth whose tender embrace tinged her interest in the narrative with a triumphant consciousness of the snowstorm outside. Little by little the rigid afternoon light began to fade into a melancholy gray. Dusk was creeping into the room in almost visible waves. Flora let the book rest on her lap and fixed her gaze on the twinkling scarlet of the stove-glass. The thickening twilight, the warmth of the apartment, and the atmosphere of the novel blended together, and for some moments Flora felt far away from herself. She was the only girl of her circle who would read Dickens, Scott, or Thackeray in addition to the Family Story Paper and the Fireside Companion
