MOYSHE GLINER (1846-June 5, 1912)
      Nickname of Moyshe Shtam, he was born in Premishlyan (Peremyshliany), Galicia, to poor parents.  He later settled in Glina, where he was an amateur writer, a Hebrew teacher, and was known as “Moyshele Shrayber” (Moyshele the writer).  He was also a wedding entertainer, and he wrote, aside from material for entertainment at weddings, poems to the occasion and the melodies that went with them.  A number of his poems were published, such as: “A kine af der gliner sreyfe” (A lament for the fire at Glina), “Der toes” (The error), and “Di yugend un dos alter” (The youth and the old man).
