MOSES ISAAC JUDAH LÖB BEN NAPHTALI HIRZ (called also Löb Zunz and Judah Liwa):

Rabbi and cabalist; born at Frankfort-on-the-Main; died at Pinczow, Russian Poland, in 1682 (in 1662 according to Wolf, "Bibl. Hebr." iii., No. 1362c). He was a pupil of Aaron Samuel Kaidanover in Talmud and of Jacob Temerles in Cabala. In 1669 he was rabbi of Holleschau, Moravia, as appears from his approbation to the "Sifra di-Ẓeni'uta de-Ya'aḳob" (Amsterdam, 1669) of his former teacher, Jacob Temerles. It is not known how long he was in Holleschau nor where he had been before going thither, but two other approbations show that in 1675 he was still there. Thence he was called to the rabbinate of Pinczow, where he remained until his death. Many rabbis applied to him for approbations of their works. Offenbach Manuscript No. 18 contains writings of and upon Moses Isaac Judah Löb, there called "Löb Zunz."
