GLOGAU, JEHIEL MICHAEL BEN ASHER LEMMEL HA-LEVI (c. 1740–1818), rabbi in Burgenland (Austria). Glogau took his name from his birthplace, where his father served as dayyan, before becoming rabbi in Eisenstadt. Around 1780 Glogau served as preacher of the ḥevra kaddisha of Vienna. On the death of his father in 1789 he succeeded him at Eisenstadt. He was in halakhic correspondence with Moses *Sofer, who held him in high esteem (Ḥatam SoferoḤ, nos. 40, 80). His son moses (d. 1837), who served as rabbi of Liben near Prague and then in Deutschkreutz (Burgenland), published the commentaries on aggadah of his father and grandfather together with his own work entitled Ḥut ha-Meshullash bi-She'arim (Vienna, 1821). The work contains sermons on the weekly readings of the Torah, each consisting of three parts: the sermons of his grandfather, entitled Sha'ar Asher; of his father, entitled Sha'ar ha-Mayim; and his own, Sha'ar ha-Katan.
