STRELISKER, MARCUS (1806–1857), Hebrew scholar and poet. Born in Brody, in his youth he was close to N. *Krochmal and I. *Erter and was greatly influenced by them. In the early 1850s he moved to Mihaileni, Romania, where he officiated as cantor and also engaged in commerce.
He contributed poems and research on the Bible and Talmud to many Hebrew periodicals, especially Galician publications. He published several collections of poetry; included among them were a number of occasional poems: Ta'aniyyat Yeshurun (1835), on the death of Franz I; Zekher Olam (1848), a dirge on his father, together with his biography; Shirah le-Kohen (1860); Todah u-Verakhah (1868); Shenei ha-Me'orot ha-Gedolim (1873).
