ISSACHAR DOV BAER BEN ARYEH LEIB OF ZLOCZOW
ISSACHAR DOV BAER BEN ARYEH LEIB OF ZLOCZOW (d. c. 1810), rabbi and ḥasidic ẓaddik, a grandson of Naphtali b. Isaac ha-Kohen of Frankfurt, author of Semi-khat Ḥakhamim (Frankfurt, 1704). Rabbi in Zloczow, he was a noted rabbinical scholar who wrote novellae on the Torah and responsa, Bat Eyni (Dubno, 1798), in which he discussed halakhic questions with the great scholars of his generation, including Ḥayyim ha-Kohen *Rapoport of Lvov and Ẓevi Hirsch of Zamosc. Issachar was also one of the outstanding disciples of the ḥasidic leader *Dov Baer the Maggid of Mezhirech. His work Mevasser Ẓedek, first published with Bat Eyni and later separately (Lemberg, 1850), is written in the ḥasidic manner and contains the teachings of Ḥasidim such as *Levi Isaac of Berdichev, *Jehiel Michael of Zloczow, and others. Toward the end of his life Issachar settled in Ereẓ Israel and died in Safed. His son-in-law Abraham Ḥayyim of Zloczow succeeded him.
