   Eulogy for R. Saul Lowenstamm (Reb Saul Amsterdamer, 1717–1790), born in Rzeszow, succeeded his father as rabbi of Amsterdam, having previously served as rabbi of Lakacz, Hungary, and Dubno, Lithuania. In Amsterdam he devoted himself to the yeshivah established by his father. R. H. J. D. Azulai, who met him in Amsterdam, refers to him in glowing terms. In 1754 he participated in the session of the Council of Four Lands in Jaroslaw. R. Saul Loewenstamm's most famous work is his Binyan Ari'el (Amsterdam, 1778), which is divided into three parts: on the Pentateuch, on the Five Scrolls, and comments on various talmudic passages. His glosses to tractate Niddah were published in the Amsterdam edition of the Talmud (1765).
