He was also considered an expert in Hebrew Bible and Grammar studies. His signature can be found on numerous occasions as a witness on official community records of Pzerosl. He died in 1891 (Suwalki Yizkor Book, page 121). His son, Judah Wistynietzky, was born in 1843 and was named after his maternal grandfather. He was educated in Raatzk, Baklerove and Suwalki. He was the author of "Elat HaShachar" (Berlin, 1892 and New York, 1894) and of glosses and annotations to "Sefer Chassidim" by Rabbi Judah b. Sauel the Chassid (Berlin, 1891-2).
