A gifted writer, he contributed essays to the periodical Ha-Levanon, using the pseudonym Ha-Le'eh (from his initials), and translated into Hebrew the historical novel Suess Oppenheimer by Markus Lehmann (1873). His sons, Ezekiel, Eliezer, and Jacob also held rabbinical positions, Ezekiel being rabbi of Kalisz.
