    Harav Shmuel Abba zt”l. was born in 1910 to his father Harav Dovid Tzimring zt”l, the author of the sefer “Metzur Dvash” on Torah & Shas. He was a Ben Achar Ben from the famous Mekubal, Shimshon of Austripolia, who was killed al Kiddush Hashem in the year ת״ח while he was in middle of Davening. Harav Dovid was also a Maggid Shiur in the Keshinov Yeshiva (Chişinău). Today, you can find the הגעות מצור דבש in the back of most volumes of shas; they became very famous throughout the world

    After World War II, HaRav Dovid emigrated to Eretz Yosroel where he became very close to the Charon Ish zt”l, as well as to the Chebiner Rav zt”l (the Chazon Ish also gave a haskama on his Sefer). Harav Dovid was niftar ל סיון תש״ל at age 90. He is buried in the Bais Hachayim of Bnei Brak.

    Harav Shmuel Abba zt”l learned in the Keshinov Yeshiva, and later served as their Rosh Yeshiva. He received his smicha from the Chief Rabbi of Bessarabia, Harav Yehuda Leib Tsirelson zt”l, a prominent Jewish leader and posek, in addition to being a member of the Romanian parliament.

    At age 25 Harav Shmuel Abba elected Rav of the Romanian city of Bivalari. Harav Shmuel Abba married his Rebitzen Fruma Sureh, the daughter of the Riskeve Rav, Harav Avrohom Shlomo Hakohen Katz, author of the sefer אורחות המשפטים על חושן משפט.
