Rubin was born to a Hassidic Jewish family, the eighth of thirteen children. After studying at the Bezalel School of Arts and Crafts in Jerusalem (founded by fellow Romanian emigre Boris Schatz in 1906), Rubin visited Paris and Italy. His art impressed Alfred Stieglitz, photographer, publisher, dealer and pioneer of American modernism, during early travels to the USA. Settling in Palestine, he developed a naïve style and bold palette. He co-founded the Association of Painters and Sculptors of Palestine in 1924.
