About R' Abraham Simcha Bunim Michelson

Avraham Chaim Michelson of blessed memory

by P. S.

He was born in the year 5646 (1886) to his father the Hassidic bibliograph Rabbi Tzvi Yechezkel Michelson, the rabbi of Plonsk and Warsaw. He was the son-in-law of Reb Baruch Nekricz of our city.

During his youth, he followed the path of his father and also worked on the annals, stories and words of Torah of the rabbis and Admorim. He wrote about the rabbinical greats of their time.

He served as secretary of the community in our city for a number of years. He was one of the intelligentsia, and a lover of the Hebrew book. He was blessed with a sense of humor. His adages made their way around the city.

His books include: “Shemen Hatov” (5665 – 1905), a monograph about Rabbi Shmelke Horowitz the rabbi of Nikolsburg and his brother Rabbi Pinchas Horowitz, the rabbi of Frankfurt am Main; “Dover Shalom” (5671 – 1911) about the Admor Rabbi Shalom of Belz and his son Rabbi Yehoshua; “Ohel Elimelech” on the Admor Rabbi Elimelech of Lizhensk; “Ohel Rebbe” about the Admor Rabbi Yaakov Yitzchak Horowitz, the Chozeh of Lublin; “Ateret Menachem”, and “Ohel Naftali” (written in Zgierz).

He died during the Holocaust. May G-d avenge his death.
