SCHORR, NAPHTALI MENDEL:

Galician Hebrew writer; died at Lemberg Dec. 14, 1883. He was the founder (1861) of the Hebrew weekly "Ha-'Et," of which only twenty-two numbers appeared. In 1855 he edited in Lemberg Jedaiah Bedersi's "Beḥinat ha-'Olam" and "Baḳḳashat ha-Memim," to which latter work he added a German translation and a Hebrew commentary entitled "Patshegen ha-Ketab."

Schorr was, besides, the author of "Har ha-Mor," a collection, in three parts, of narratives from Jewish medieval history (Lemberg, 1855-75), and of "Mas'at Nefesh," called also "Mishle Berakman" (ib. 1867), a Hebrew translation of the "Brahmanische Weisheit," to which he wrote an introduction. Schorr contributed articles to Hebrew periodicals over the signature , formed of the last letter of each of his names.
