AARON SAMUEL BEN NAPHTALI HERZ HA-KOHEN

AARON SAMUEL BEN NAPHTALI HERZ HA-KOHEN (1740–1814), Polish rabbi. He served as rabbi to the communities of Stefan, Ostrog, Yampol, and Belaya Tserkov. He was an ardent follower of dov baer of Mezhirech and Phinehas Shapira of Korets and was influenced by them in his views on Ḥasidism. He collected extracts from their statements in his books, Kodesh Hillulim (Lemberg, 1864). His talmudic novellae and his responsa were destroyed by fire. Only Kore me-Rosh, a commentary on the Midrash Rabbah, of which a portion only (part of Genesis) has been published (Berdichev, 1811), and Ve-Ẓivvah ha-Kohen, an ethical will to his children preceded by an anthology of homiletical and esoteric thoughts (Belaya Tserkov, 1823; Jerusalem, 1953), have survived. -BIBLIOGRAPHY: M.M. Biber, Mazkeret li-Gedolei Ostraha (1907), 254–60. (Yehoshua Horowitz)
