BiographyEdit

Rabbi Moshe Biderman was born into abject poverty[1] in Łachów, Świętokrzyskie Voivodeship, Poland[2] in 1776. His father, Rabbi Dovid Biderman[3] was the founder of the Lelov Hassidic dynasty. After his first wife died,[4] Rabbi Moshe married Rivka Rochel, the daughter of Rabbi Yaakov Yitzchak Rabinowicz.[5] After the death of his father and his father-in-law,[1] Rabbi Moshe Biderman became a disciple of Rabbi Simcha Bunim of Peshischa.[1] In 1827, upon the death Rabbi Simcha Bunim, Rabbi Biderman became a disciple of Rabbi Israel Yitzhak Kalish of Vurka.[1] In 1847, Rabbi Kalish died and Rabbi Biderman, finally, agreed to accept a leadership position and became the Rabbi of Przedborz. Shortly before Rabbi Biderman's death, he decided to leave Poland and immigrate to Eretz Yisroel.[6] 72 days after arriving in Jerusalem, he died on December 18, 1851 and was buried on Mount of Olives near the tomb of the prophet Zacharia.[7]
