Luba Kadison (1906-2006) a native of Kovno (now Kaunas, Lithuania), was a prominent Yiddish actress who performed in Yiddish theatres all over the world.

During World War I, the Russians ordered all Jews to leave Kovno within twenty-four hours. From there, she and her family traveled by train to Vilna, where they began life anew. While living there, Luba became a member of the Vilna Troupe. She eventually married fellow actor Joseph Buloff.

In a 1998 Martin Boris interview, Luba Kadison talked more about Joseph Buloff, the Vilna Troupe, and how they decided to come to the United States.
