QUETSCH, SOLOMON (1798–1856), Moravian Orthodox rabbi. A native of *Mikulov (Nikolsburg) and pupil of Mordecai *Banet, he officiated as rabbi at Piesling and *Lipnik (1832–54). He was the last representative of the old Orthodoxy and the chief opponent of Samson Raphael *Hirsch as Moravian *Landesrabbiner. In May 1855 he became rabbi of Mikulov, but the position was not combined with that of Landesrabbiner. His death in January 1856 caused the closing of the Mikulov yeshivah.
A few of his novellae were published as Ḥokhmat Shelomo together with the Prague edition of Mordecai Banet's Har ha-Mor (1862). S.J. Rapoport wrote a commemorative poem on him in Kokhevei Yiẓḥak, (22, (1856), 3).
