He spent most of his life as a wandering teacher in Russia, Lithuania, and Poland, settling in Warsaw in 1929.

His monumental work, Mishneh Ḥabad, mainly a compilation from the sources and sayings of its leaders, appeared in installments from 1932 to 1936. His publicist writings and literary compositions were published in the Hebrew and Yiddish press after World War i in the journals Ha-Ẓefirah, Ha-Mizraḥi, and Ha-Toren, among others. In 1922 in Lodz he published and edited a journal entitled She'ar Yashuv. He also published Limmudei ha-Yahadut ("Instruction in Judaism," 1917) and his Ketavim (1936). He perished in *Treblinka during the Holocaust.

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
