Jacob Dinesohn (1856?-1919) was a Yiddish author, editor, and literary activist. He was born in the Kovno region of Lithuania. He moved to Warsaw in late 1885, where he met and befriended the noted Yiddish writer, Isaac Leib Peretz. During World War I, he and Peretz founded the first homes for Jewish children who had been orphaned and abandoned during the war. He died in 1919 and was buried next to Peretz (who died in 1915) in the Warsaw Jewish Cemetery.
