Russian preacher; native of Krozh, government of Kovno, Russia; died in Wilna Oct. 25, 1820. He was on intimate terms with Elijah of Wilna, andwas the teacher of his sons. He became "maggid," or preacher, of Wilna, and occupied that position for many years, until he lost his voice. He was succeeded by R. Ezekiel Feiwel of Dretchin (about 1811). His son Ḥayyim was the father of Lazar Lipman Hurwitz. The work entitled "Mo'ade ha-Shem" (Wilna, 1802), on the Jewish calendar, is supposed to be by Hurwitz, but the evidence for the supposition is very slight.
