Zamość 1772: Rabbi Yakov Yitzchak Hochgelernter passed away.

R’ Yakov Yitzchak was the son of Rabbi Chaim of Lemberg, mentioned in our article “The Raitzes Brothers – The Kedoshim of Lviv” in Kankan issue 2.

R’ Yakov Yitzchak was eventually asked to take the rabbinic seat in the historical city Zamość. It is his time, in which it is referred to in Jewish literature, as “The Golden times of Zamość.”

More about Zamość, read the article “Faith and Art” by Joel Weisberger.
