Rabbi and Talmudist (born in Lithuania )
Rabbi and Talmudist born in Lithuania about 1775; died at Seiny, government of Suwalki, April 25, 1846. He was a lineal descendant in the seventh generation of Tobias Bachrach, who, together with Israel ben Shalom, was beheaded on a charge of ritual murder in Rushony Sept. 19, 1659. Bachrach's life was a model of piety. He distributed among the poor all the income derived from his position of rabbi at Seiny, and lived on the interest from a small fund that his friends had invested for him in their business. His notes on the Talmud, under the title "Nimmuḳe Hagrib = ha-Gaon R. Jehudah Bachrach" (Critical Comments of Hagrib, the Gaon R. Jehudah Bachrach), appear in the edition of the Talmud which was published by Rom at Wilna.
May the merit of the tzaddik Rabbi Jehudah (HESKIEL) Bachrach protect us all, Amen.
