   Document signed in Hebrew by R. Mordecai Zev (Wolf) b. Jacob Meshullam Ornstein (1790-1837). R. Orenstein was educated by his illustrious father, author of Yeshu'ot Ya'akov. He refused to accept a rabbinical post for many years. He finally accepted an invitation from the Przemysl community to become its rabbi, but died in 1837, before he was able to take up his post. His responsa and novellae are to be found in his father's Yeshu'ot Ya'akov.
