About Chaya Durant (Kaufman)

Mrs. Durant, the former Ida Kaufman, was born in Prosurov, Russia, and came to New York with her parents in 1900. She changed her name legally after her husband began to call her Ariel because she was strong and brave as a boy, and as swift and mischievous as an elf, he later wrote.
