Rabbi Meir Leibush Malbim: Bucharest, 1850

Posted February 17, 2014

Malbim was born in Poland and served as a rabbi in several communities prior to being selected as the rabbi of Bucharest in 1858. In Bucharest, he met with resistance from the local Reform movement which eventually led to his removal from the position by the Romanian government. His experience in Bucharest shaped his Biblical commentary which attempted to refute the Reform by defending and supporting rabbinic statements and traditions.
