ROSENBERG, ABRAHAM ḤAYYIM (1838–1928), Hebrew writer. Born in Russia, he wrote articles for the Hebrew and Yiddish press. He emigrated to the U.S. in 1891, and operated a Hebrew printing shop.

Rosenberg's main achievement was the biblical encyclopedia in ten volumes, Oẓar ha-Shemot (1898–1922). For a brief period of time, in 1897, he coedited (with A.M. Radin) the Hebrew monthly Ner ha-Ma'aravi, and between 1900 and 1902 Ha-Modi'a le-Ḥodashim, a Hebrew monthly (first together with H. Rosenthal, and in 1902 alone).
