Zev Hirsch Bernstein

Zev Hirsch Bernstein (b. 1847, Kudirkos Naumiestis, Suwalki Province, Poland - d. 1907, Tannersville, New York) was the author and compiler of the "Hatsofe B'Erez Hachadosho", the first Hebrew periodical in the United States.

Bernstein emigrated to the United States in 1870. That summer he tried publishing two newspapers with no success. In 1871, he commenced the "Hatsofe", which ran for five years. After the publication ceased he became a banker. Bernstein was also the organizer of the Hebrew Encyclopedia Co.
