LIPSCHITZ (Lipschuetz), SOLOMON BEN MOSES (1675–1758), German ḥazzan and writer. Born in Fuerth, the son of a ḥazzan, Lipschitz practiced his profession as a ḥazzan in several communities, including Prague and Frankfurt, before settling in Metz in 1715. His book Te'udat Shelomo (Offenbach, 1718) combines instructions and moral precepts for the ḥazzan with the writer's personal reminiscences – both of them valuable historical evidence.
