   Laws for women in Yiddish by R. Moses b. Zevi Teitelbaum of Ujhely (Satoraljaujhely in Hungary; 1759–1841), scion of family of rabbis and dynasty of zaddikim in Hungary and Galicia. R. Moses was born in Przemysl, Galicia. A pupil of R. Jacob Isaac ha-Hozeh (the Seer) of Lublin, he first served as rabbi at Sieniawa (Galicia) and from 1808 at Ujhely. R. Moses was among the first to spread Hasidism in the northern and central districts of Hungary. He won renown as a learned man and a wonder-working zaddik among all sectors of the Jewish community, both Hasidim and others. He also wrote Yismah Moshe (Lemberg, 1848–61), considered one of the classic homiletic works of Hasidism.
