PINES, NOAH (1871–1939), Hebrew educator and writer. Born in Shklov, Russia, he studied at the yeshivah of Volozhin. At an early age, he became a teacher and established a modern ḥeder in Lublin at the beginning of the century. After completing his pedagogic studies in German and Swiss universities, he immigrated to Palestine (1919), taught in the Levinsky Teachers' Seminary of Tel Aviv, and served as its principal from 1923 until his death.
He published study manuals, articles, and essays on educational problems. His book Ha-Zamir (1903), children's poems for reading and singing, was an important innovation. A volume of his poems Ẓilẓelei Erev (1940) and a pedagogic work, Ketavim Pedagogiyyim (1941), were published posthumously.
Kressel, Leksikon, 2 (1967), 619–20.
