            This was the pseudonym of Fayvl Moldavski.  In the 1870s and 1880s, he was the owner of a Jewish publishing house in Warsaw, which brought out religious texts and storybooks in both Hebrew and Yiddish.  He was the author of the pamphlets: Mayse nora fun r’ shmuel amsterdamer mit zayn vayb sore di tsnue (Fearful tale of R. Shmuel Amsterdamer and his wife Sarah the chaste), “from this story one can extract a moral, that a person ought not oppose God, blessed is His name, but a man must have faith that God, blessed be He, will help” (Warsaw, 1879), 16 pp.; Mayse fun maharsha (Story of Maharsha), Mayse fun rambam (Story of Rambam), and Mayse fun node beyehude (Story of those well-known among the Jews) (Warsaw, 1876-1879), all 16 pp.
