Adler, Celia

(1890-1979)
   Daughter of legendary Yiddish theatre actor Jacob Adler and his wife, actress Dina Stettin, Celia Adler was praised for her sensitive, intellectual acting. Raised by her stepfather, Sigmund Feinman, an actor who encouraged her theatrical interests, Adler debuted as a child and her entire career was devoted to acting in Yiddish theatre plays in New York, particularly for the Yiddish Art Theatre and on tour. Her few Broadway appearances included short-lived productions of David Pinski's The Treasure (1920) and A Flag Is Born (1946).
