Berthe Bénichou-Aboulker


Algerian Jewish poet and playwright who wrote in French. Her play La Kahena, reine berbière (1933) was the "first work published by a Jewish woman in Algeria".

Her husband, Henri Aboulker, was a surgeon and professor; their son, José Aboulker was a surgeon and political figure; and their daughter Colette Béatrice Aboulker-Muscat was a renowned Kabbalah teacher.
