Short biography
Aliza (Waizman) Greenblatt was born in Bessarabia in 1885, and moved with her family to Philadelphia in 1900. Seven years later she and her new husband, also a Bessarabian immigrant, moved to Atlantic City, where she organized a branch of the Farband, a Yiddish socialist charity, and established a local branch of the Zionist Organization of America. She raised funds for the Zionist movement and was national president of Pioneer Women. Greenblatt wrote beautiful Yiddish poetry; some poems were eventually put to music. She and her husband had five children, including Marjorie, who married Woody Guthrie; singer-songwriter Arlo Guthrie is her grandson.
