Lipman Hirsch Loewenstein (d. c. 1850), Hebrew scholar. He was reviser in the publishing-house of Isaac Lehrberger at Rödelheim, which office was afterward held by Seligman Baer. He published: The Book of Proverbs, edited from manuscripts, with a Hebrew commentary and a German metrical translation (Frankfort-on-the-Main, 1838); "Kol Bokim," the Book of Lamentations, with a Hebrew commentary and a German metrical translation, to which he added various dirges introduced into the liturgy of the Synagogue (ib. 1838); "Damascia: die Judenverfolgung zu Damascus und Ihre Wirkung auf die Oeffentliche Meinung, Nebst Nachweisungen über den Ursprung der Gegen die Juden Wiederholten Beschuldigung des Ritualmords" (Rödelheim, 1840; 2d ed. 1841); "Mizmor le-Todah," an ode addressed to Moses Montefiore on his return from the Orient (ib. 1841); "Stimmen Berühmter Christen über den Damascener Blutprozess" (ib. 1842). He also edited the Pentateuch with Targum Onkelos, Rashi's commentary, and an explanation of the French words occurring in the last-named (2 vols., ib. 1848).
