Austrian Hebraist; born at Brody, Galicia, in the beginning of the nineteenth century; died there July 31, 1876. Werber, who was a follower of Isaac Erter and Nachman Krochmal, founded a Hebrew weekly, which was published in Brody from 1865 to 1890 under the names of "Ha-'Ibri" and "'Ibri Anoki." In addition to numerous articles which appeared in this magazine, Werber wrote: "Megillat Ḳohelet" (Lemberg, 1862; 2d ed., Warsaw, 1876), consisting of explanatory notes on Ecclesiastes, together with a long introduction; and "Toledot Adam" (Brody, 1870), a biography of Albert Cohn of Paris.
