Abraham Ḥayyim ben Gedaliah

Galician Talmudist. He flourished early in the nineteenth century, was a disciple of the brothers Phinehas and Samuel Horowitz, and, like his teachers, is considered one of the most erudite of the Ḥasidim. He did not derive his Ḥasidic principles from these teachers, but directly from the maggid (preacher) of Mezhiritz, whose utterances he frequently quotes in his "Oraḥ la-Ḥayyim" (The Way to Life), Zolkiev, 1817. This work appeared posthumously and contains an introduction by R. Ephraim Solomon Margaliot.
