Today, 217 years ago, in the year 1803, Rabbi Rafael Kohen Hamburger (whom we mentioned on Wednesday), passed away in Altona.

One of his students, who studied under him, was Rabbi Chaim of Volozhin.

In regard to what we mentioned on Wednesday, it is interesting to note that his opponent R’ Saul Berliner’s yahrzeit, is 3 days before him. Although he passed away several years before, in 1794.
