Esther Rachel Kaminska, 1870-1926 and A.I. Kaminski, 1867-1918 established an itinerant theater which helped establish Kaminska as one of the leading female personalities of the Yiddish stage. In 1907, her husband and Marek Arnshteyn founded the Literarishe Trupe, which toured the Russian Empire from 1908-1909. She became especially well known for her roles in some of Jacob Gordin's plays. She was canonized by theater audiences as "Di Mame Ester-Rokhl." Her daughter, Ida Kaminska, 1899-1980 was also a well-known Yiddish theater actress.
