At the age of twenty four in 1694, he became A.B.D. Podhajce. In 1699 he was arrested by the town's citizens on false charges and accusations, but managed to escape and became A.B.D. of Schwabach that same year.

He became known as the "Schwabacher Rabbiner" and, in 1707 wrote an approbation there to Ir Binyamin Sheni by Benjamin Ze'ev, son of Samuel Darshan, published in Furth 1712.
