Description
   R. Hayyim Mordecai Roller (1868-1946), was the most prominent of the rabbis who officiated in Tirgu Neamt. A prolific writer, noted Talmudic scholar, he published several volumes of responsa and novellae. He served between 1895 and 1941. He died in Jerusalem.

Tirgu Neamt, town in Moldavia, Rumania. According to local tradition, Jews were authorized to settle by the sovereign Stephen the Great, who ruled from 1457 to 1502. Later, the king (Peter the Lame) issued a decree expelling Jews from the country (1579). Jews returned to Tirgu Neamt in the 17th century. The oldest tombstones date from 1677 and 1689; there were three cemeteries, the last founded in 1838.
