Malbin, Meier Leibisch

Malbin, Meier Leibisch a Jewish author and rabbi, was born in Russia in 1810. In his early youth his intellectual powers roused the utmost admiration; in his sixteenth year his fluency in the Talmud was extraordinary, his memory enabling him to repeat folio after folio. When eighteen years of age he became rabbi at Wreschen, in the province of Posen. From Wreschen he was called to Kempen, and after a long residence there, to Bucharest. Being obliged to leave Roumania on account of his opposition to the Jewish Reform party, he returned to Russia. After a short residence there he went to Konigsberg, in Prussia. Malbin died September 8, 1879, at Kiev, on his way to a new position at Esenstockau, in Russia. He wrote commentaries on the- Pentateuch, the five Megilloth, and Isaiah, for which see Lippe, Bibliographisches Lexikon (Vienna, 1881), s.v. In his expositions he proved himself not only an elegant Hebrew writer, but also a deep thinker. (B.P.)
