Biurist and one of the Me'assefim; born in 1764; died at Vienna Nov. 6, 1805. Obornik contributed to the "Meassef" a great number of fables and was one of the most active of the Biurists. He translated into German the Books of Joshua and Judges, adding a short commentary ("bi'ur"), and (with Samuel Detmold) the Book of Samuel. The translation of the whole Bible, with the bi'ur, was edited by Obornik under the title of "Minḥah Ḥadashah" (Vienna, 1792-1806).
