German rabbi; born in 1740; died at Altona in 1807. He was rabbi of several communities, including Brody and Glogau, and from 1803 until his death he held the rabbinate of the three communities of Altona, Hamburg, and Wandsbeck. He was the author of several works, which consist for the most part of responsa and of notes on the Bible, Talmud, and casuists ("posḳim"); but his only publication was a collection of his responsa on the Shulḥan 'Aruk, Oraḥ Ḥayyim and Yoreh De'ah, entitled "Tif'eret Ẓebi" (Lemberg, 1811). Some of his responsa are also included in Meshullam Zalman's "Bigde Kehunnah" and in Isaac Abraham's "Keter Kehunnah," No. 9.
