History Biographical
Chayele Grober (1898-1978) was born and educated in Bjalistok, Poland, and was transplanted to Moscow during World War II. Grober began her career as a performer in Moscow in 1918. She was among the founders and stars of the famous Hebrew theatre Habimah. She relocated to Montreal in the 1930s, where she continued her career as a singer and actress, working in Hebrew and Yidddish. She most often performed as a one-woman act incorporating song, theatre, dance, comedy and mime. She toured extensively, appearing in in South America, Canada, Europe, Israel, South Africa and Australia. In Montreal, Grober became director of the Yiddish Theatre Group in Montreal and founded her own studio which she named "Habimah" after the famous theatre founded in Moscow. Later in life, she performed less but remained involved in theatre as a drama teacher and playwrite.
