Rabichev spent his early career in Kiev studying in the studios
of visionary artists Alexander Murashko and Alexandra Exter. He promoted
the creation of Jewish-centric art, and along with Issachar Ber Rybak,
Abraham Manievich, Marc Chagall and Robert Falk, he served as a core
member of the Artistic Division of the Jewish Cultural League that was
formed in Kiev in 1918. The group sought to fuse traditional Jewish
imagery with concurrent, avant-garde techniques.

Moscow in 1922 with several other members of the group, and there he
turned his focus to the theater, collaborating with the State Jewish
Chamber Theater in the early 1920s.
