GOLDMAN, YA'AKOV BEN ASHER (1856–1931), Hebrew journalist. Goldman was born in Jerusalem where he studied at the Eẓ Ḥayyim yeshivah. Influenced by the Haskalah at an early age, he contributed articles to the Hebrew press, including Yehudah vi-Yrushalayim, Ha-Ẓefirah, Ha-Asif, Ha-Maggid, Ha-Meliẓ, and Ḥavaẓẓelet. In 1890 he moved to Jaffa, where he was among the leading figures in the Ashkenazi Jewish community and one of the founders of the Neveh Ẓedek quarter. For a time he served as chief Palestine correspondent for Ha-Ẓefirah and acting editor of Ḥavaẓẓelet. His articles include detailed historical accounts of modern Jewish settlement in Ereẓ Israel. At the turn of the century, Goldman became extremely religious. He abandoned his secular writing and devoted himself to biblical research. Late in life, he published two books on various topics (talmudic, religious, etc.). -BIBLIOGRAPHY: Kressel, Leksikon, 1 (1965), 419. (Getzel Kressel)
