Braudes, Reuben Asher

   Lithuanian Hebrew novelist and reformer. He was born in Vilna and lived in Odessa, Warsaw and Lemberg where he edited the monthly journal Ha-Boker Or. He later lived in Romania and Vienna. His novel Two Extremes depicts the limitations of Haskalah and Orthodoxy, and endorses Jewish nationalism. His writings, which advocate social and religious reform, reflect the intellectual changes taking place in eastern European Jewish society at the end of the 19th century.
