The article presents a biography of Jewish jeweler and musician Lipa Feingold. Feingold emigrated to the U.S. from Russia with his wife in 1905. He patented a number of jewelry inventions while residing in Denver, Colorado. His Yiddish musical compositions gave insight into the Jewish immigrant experience in the U.S. and demonstrated his concerns about assimilation. Feingold's English songs promoted patriotism and anti-racism. He died on October 7, 1945.
