The third teacher at the Hebrew courses of the Tarbut school network in Nadworna.

According to the memoirs of Giza Petranker, "[Schochat] had the soul of a poet and played a few instruments and composed music. During his time the cultural life of our school reached its height. He organized an orchestra of mandolin players and started a ballet class for girls. At that time the first refugees from Germany arrived and with them a young girl by the name of Bitkover, who was the first ballet teacher" (Giza Petranker, "The Hebrew Scholl ‘Tarbut' of Nadworna," Sefer Nadvurna, 50-1 [English part], 85 [Hebrew part]).
