LÖB ARYEH BEN TOBIAH:
Lithuanian Talmudic scholar and printer; died at Wilna Oct. 24, 1812. He enjoyed great consideration in Wilna on account of his learning and of the assistance rendered by him to Talmudic students. He was the first (in partnership with Tobiah b. Abraham Abele) to establish a Hebrew printing-house at Wilna (1799). The first work printed there was Saadia's "Ma'amar ha-Teḥiyyah weha-Pedut." Owing to competition the establishment existed a short time only.
