Sackheim, Tobiah B. Aryeh Löb

Russian Talmudist and communal worker; died in Rosinoi, government of Grodno, at an advanced age, Jan. 28, 1822. He was a descendant in the sixth generation of Israel b. Shalom of that town, who suffered martyrdom on Rosh ha-Shanah, 1659. Sackheim was a wealthy merchant in his younger days, but retired from business in middle life, and devoted his time to study and charitable work. He was for many years dayyan in Rosinoi, and was highly respected for his piety and other noble qualities. His son Joseph was one of the most prominent Jews of Wilna when that city was visited by Sir Moses Montefiore in 1846.
