About R' Zvi Yehoshua Liebish Horowitz, A.B.D. Trebitch, Prussitz and Jamnitz

R. Zevi Joshua ben Samuel Shmelke Horowitz (Ribash, 1735?–1816) was an East European rabbi. R. Horowitz appears to have been born in Nikolsburg. He married the daughter of R. Phinehas ha-Levi Horowitz , author of the Hafla’ah. From 1781 to 1786 he was rabbi of Jamnitz, Moravia, from 1786–1800 in Trebitsch (Trebic), and from 1811 until his death in Prossnitz. His Semikhat Moshe, talmudic studies, was published as an appendix to his father's Nezir ha-Shem (1869). His novellae, Hiddushei ha-Ribash (Hebrew acronym of Rabbi Joshua b. Samuel), appeared posthumously (1878). R. Ezekiel b. Judah Landau addressed a responsum to him (Responsa Noda bi-Yhudah, Mahadura Tinyana, OḤ no. 15) in which he expressed his pleasure at hearing of his appointment as rabbi of Trebitsch. A responsum of R. Zevi Hirsch b. Phinehas ha-Levi Horowitz was addressed to him in 1815 (Responsa Homer ba-Kodesh (1876), no. 7). His Hiddushei ha-Ribash also mentions the novellae of his son, Shmelke of Przemysl.

Hiddushei ha-Ribash Discourses and novellae by R. Zevi Joshua ben Samuel Shmelke Horowitz (Ribash). Described on the title page as the first Helek, that page states that it includes the discourses, desirable, pure and clear, more than fine gold and gems, founded upon sockets of sharp intellect, pilpul and several, expounded on festivals, and gives an accounting of R. Horowitz’s distinguished genealogy. There are approbations from R. Isaac Shmelkes and from R. Isaac Aaron Segal Ettinga followed by the introduction of R. Horowitz’s grandson R. Samuel Shmelke ben Meshulam Zalman Horowitz, who brought the book to press, and then the discourses.
