Bublick, Gedaliah


BUBLICK, GEDALIAH (1875–1948), U.S. Yiddish journalist and Orthodox Zionist leader. Bublick was born in Grodno, Russia. He began his literary career in 1899 with an article on Jewish nationalism that appeared in the Hebrew periodical Ha-Shilo'aḥ. In 1901 he helped lead a group of 50 Jewish families from Bialystok to Moissville, Argentina, where he worked for three years teaching Hebrew. Settling in New York City in 1904, Bublick joined the editorial staff of Yidishes Tageblat. He became editor in chief in 1915, and continued as co-editor when the paper merged with the Morgen-Zhurnal in 1928. Bublick was appointed president of the American *Mizrachi organization, which he helped to establish in 1911, and in 1918 vice president of the *American Jewish Congress. He served on the executive of the World Zionist Organization (1919–26), and of the Jewish Agency for Palestine (from 1929). Among Bublick's publications were Mayn Rayze in Erets-Yisroel ("My Travels in Palestine," 1921), and Min ha-Meẓar ("Out of Distress," 1923), a collection of his lectures and essays about modern Judaism. He was a frequent contributor to Hebrew and Yiddish periodicals.

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
