Poetry by Ber Bing, the son of R. Abraham, renowned talmudist (b. 1752) and Rabbi of Wuerzburg, Bavaria, where he had been chief rabbi from 1798 to 1839. Before officiating at Würzburg, he was rabbi at Heidingsfeld, Bavaria. Bing was a pupil of Nathan Adler of Frankfort, and belonged to the old orthodox school which admitted no innovations in religious matters, even in externals. A decided opponent of the reform movement, he declared it to be the duty of every orthodox Jew to refuse to go to the temples of the reformers. He was director of a large yeshibah and had a great reputation as a Talmudist. Among the Talmudic works which he left at his death, only the glosses on the Shulhan 'Aruk, Orah Hayyim, have been printed, these bearing the title, "Zikron Abraham" (Presburg, 1892, edited by lsaac Bamberger).
