Avigdor helped out from the age of seven by tutoring students; the family was aligned with the Chortikov hassidic dynasty. While staying in Husiaten Avigdor came under the influence of a local maskil, he began learning science and ceased to pay visits to the Rebbe of Husiaten.

In 1924 Aptowitzer was invited to an academic position in Jerusalem but he turned down the offer because of his wife's illness.
