HOECHHEIMER, MOSES BEN ḤAYYIM COHEN
HOECHHEIMER, MOSES BEN ḤAYYIM COHEN (c. 1750–1835), rabbi and Hebrew grammarian, known by his Hebrew pseudonym Hekhim (Heb. הֶעְכִים). Born at Hoechheim (Franconia, Germany), Hoechheimer served as dayyan in Fuerth and in 1793 became rabbi of Ansbach where he remained until his death. He was in contact with such leading rabbinical authorities of his time as Ezekiel *Landau of Prague and *Meshullam Zalman b. Solomon of Fuerth, who quoted his opinions in their responsa. He wrote a textbook on Hebrew grammar, Safah Berurah (Fuerth, 1790) with tables of conjugations, and published David *Kimḥi's work Mikhlol, with annotations by Elijah *Levita and a commentary by Hoechheimer himself (ibid., 1793). Many of his poems have been printed in Hebrew periodicals.
