   Laws pertaining to women by R. Abraham David b. Asher Anschel Wahrman (c. 1771–1840), hasidic rabbi, was born in Nadvornaya, Ukraine. He was a disciple of R. Levi Isaac of Berdichev and R. Moses Leib of Sasov. He served as rabbi in Jazlowce (Jazlowice) from 1791 and when his father-in-law R. Zevi Hirsch Kro, author of Neta Sha'ashu'im (1829) and av bet din in Buchach, died in 1814, R. Abraham was appointed to his position. While living in Buchach, he began to behave like a zaddik, prayed according to Sephardi custom, and prolonged the morning prayer to noon. Scholars in the town opposed him, but many gathered round him in order to enjoy his teachings and blessings. He trained many disciples and wrote the following important halakhic and hasidic works: Da'at Kedoshim, in three parts (part one 1871); Mahazeh Avraham (1876); Tefillah le-David (1876); Divrei Avot (1879); Eshel Avraham (1931); and Divrei David (1892).
