HaRav Yitzchak of Drohovitch, zt”l, (5504 / 1744). He was the son of Harav Yosef Sprabidlider. The family were descendants of Harav Yitzchak Chayus, Rav of Prague and mechaber of Apei Ravrevai. He was the father of Rav Yechiel Michel, the Maggid of Zlotschov. Reb Yitzchak resided in Ostroha, and was in the group of 10 avreichim, known as the foremost lamdanim in the city, who were supported by the naggid Reb Yozpe. In later years, Rav Yitzchak served as the official maggid or “mochiach” (admonisher) and dayan in the beit din of Brod at the time when Rav Yitzchak of Hamburg was serving as the town’s Rav.
Rav Yitzchak traveled to the Baal Shem Tov, who attested that Rav Yitzchak was a Tzaddik Hador (Tzaddik of the generation) and that the entire world rested on his merit. Reb Yitzchak was also known for his many Mofsim (miracles).
Many of Reb Yitzchak’s divrei Torah were later published in Mayim Rabbim, a compilation of the divrei Torah of his son Harav Yechiel Michel, the Maggid of Zlotchov.
Rav Yitzchak was niftar on 7 Nisan 5504/1744. (Others say the date was 5510 / 1750). He was buried in Charkov.
