R' Yitzchok of Drovitch

Even before the spreading of chassidus by the students of the Baal Shem Tov, a group known as the Chassidim of Provence had become well known in Europe. This group consisted of great scholars in Toras haNigleh and Toras haNistar (the revealed and the hidden Torah), who abstained from worldly vanities and lived the sparing lives of exalted men of world Jewry.

Among them was the saintly R' Yitzchok of Drovitch, called Reb Yitzchok "Hamochiach" (the rebuker) and known as one who aroused thousands of Jews to repent and to strengthen themselves.

He served as a Dayan (Rabbinical Court Judge) in Brodt, and headed the famous group of ten learned scholars in the synagogue of R' Yozfa in Ostra. He died on the seventh of Nisan 5510 (1750), leaving behind his illustrious son, R' Yechiel Michel, The Maggid of Zlotschov.
