About Abraham Goldman

Abraham Goldman was married , in his youth, to Zipporah Bloomgarten.. Whether she had any children by him I don't know , but know that his elder brother had a son named Yegor.. When he was in his youth, Emma describes her father as "handsome, dashing and full of vitality". He was an ambitious, energetic, young man who dreamed of the large city and the big things he was able to do there. He was involved in Zionist activities, according to Eilat Gordin Levitas. (Read her paragraph about him.)

   According to his granddaughter,  He was highly educated and fluent in four or five languages and had cherished hopes of either becoming "a man of learning"or a man of the professions".
  Instead, he found himself, as a Jew, excluded from any real opportunity to advance, except , by taking advantage of  the peasants, which he refused to do.
The failure of his life, and the reality that he was't able to use his abilities made him a "verbissene"  which, in turn, caused him to be ill--natured and harsh toward his family. Emma ascribes   her parents' unhappy marriage to her mother's sexual reservedness that was aggravated by her father's harshness.
