Talmudic author; born in Kittsee (Köpcsèny), Hungary, about 1775; died at Presburg Sept. 28, 1845. He was a disciple of Marcus Benedict, and, while not an officiatingrabbi, he devoted his time to rabbinical studies. Strictly observant in his religious practise, he was tolerant of those who differed from him. He wrote "Shalme Nedabah" (see Ezek. xlvi. 12), Presburg, 1838, notes on various Talmudic treatises. The second part, published in Presburg in 1843, contains, besides notes on Talmudic treatises, notes on the Shulḥan 'Aruk and homilies.
