This chapter provides some background information about Moshko Blank. It explains that he was an Ashkenazic, Yiddish-speaking Jew born to a traditional Jewish family in the pre-partitioned Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. In his life in Starokonstantinov, Blank was more interested in improving his town's morals that its appearance and he bombarded the town administration, the district authorities, and the provincial governor with proposals, appeals, notes, protests, allegations, claims, and denunciations. According to East European archives, Blank was registered as an urban dweller and worked as a middleman.

Keywords:   Moshko Blank, Yiddish-speaking Jew, morals, Starokonstantinov, urban dweller, middleman
