Austrian rabbi and Talmudist; born at Nikolsburg, Moravia, Oct. 13, 1798; died there Jan. 30, 1856. He was educated at the yeshibah of his native city under Mordecai Benet, whose favorite disciple he was. He officiated as rabbi successively at Piesling, Leipnik, and Nikolsburg. In the last-named city, where he succeeded Samson Raphael Hirsch, he officiated only a few months. He was a rabbi of the old school, but was distinguished by a tolerant and kindly disposition. Of his literary works only some Talmudic novellæ are known, edited under the title "Ḥokmat Shelomoh," in the collection "Harha-Mor," by Moses Löb Kohn (Vienna, 1862).
