   R. Abraham Bing, renowned talmudist German rabbi and Talmudist; born in 1752 at Frankfort-on-the-Main; died in 1841 at Würzburg, Bavaria, where he had been chief rabbi until his resignation at the beginning of 1839. Before officiating at Würzburg, he was rabbi at Heidingsfeld, Bavaria. Bing was a pupil of R. 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 yeshiva 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).
