Epstein, Rabbi Moshe Yechiel HaLevi (The Ozhorover Rebbe)

June 15, 2006

Rabbi Moshe Yechiel HaLevi Epstein lived in Ozhorov in Poland, in which he became the rabbi by the age of twenty five. After the Holocaust he moved to Tel Aviv in Israel, where he formed a Chassidic group. His major works included an encyclopedia of Jewish thought called Aish Dos, and a ten volume work on the Chumash (bible) known as Be’er Moshe. Famous for his complete knowledge of the entire written and oral Torah perfectly, he was often described as a “sealed container that never loses a drop”.
