Lemberg, 1863: Rabbi Mordechai Wolf Ettinger passed away.

R’ Mordechai Wolf is the famous brother-in-law and chavrusa of the renowned Lemberger Rav, Rabbi Yosef Shaul Nathanson, known as the Sho’el Umeishiv. Together they published quite a number of sefarim, such as Meforshei Hayam and Magen Giborim. R’ Mordechai Wolf held the position of being the President of Eretz Yisrael.

At his levaya, he was eulogized by Rabbi Yitzchak Schmelkes, then rav of Przemyśl. Eventually R’ Yitzchak was given R’ Mordechai Wolf’s post in Lemberg.
