   The author, A. Schelsinger, also issued this combination eulogy and biographical sketch of R. Trebitsch in Hebrew as Kol Nehi (1842). R. Nehemiah Trebitsch (Menahem Nahum; 1779–1842), Moravian rabbi. R. Trebitsch taught at the Prague yeshivot of R. Jacob Guensburg and Simon Kuh before becoming rabbi in Prossnitz (1826–32). He was subsequently appointed Landesrabbiner of Moravia with his seat in Nikolsburg. The right bestowed upon him by the provincial government (1833) to appoint candidates for vacant rabbinates was canceled in 1838 because of his persistent refusal to nominate rabbis with liberal leanings. This cancellation was also influenced by his opposition to the use of German in sermons for which he had been officially censured. However, he consented to, and participated in, the establishment of a Hebrew-German industrial school. He wrote glosses to the Jerusalem Talmud, and Kovez al Yad ha-Hazakah (8 vols., 1835–42), notes on Maimonides' Yad.
