Who was Hillel Paritcher?
Hillel HaLevi Malisov of Paritch, a levite by birth, commonly known as Reb Hillel Paritcher was a famous Orthodox Jewish Chabad Rabbi in Russia. Specifically, he served as a Mashpia and communal rabbi in the towns of Paritch, near Minsk, Russia, and Bobroisk, Belarus. He was considered exceptional in his scholarship and piety, and is referred to as a Tzadik, and even as a "half Rebbe."
He was born in Khometz, Russia. Although he was originally a disciple of Rabbi Mordechai of Chernobyl, he became a disciple of Rabbi Shneur Zalman of Liadi after learning in a “hidden” Tanya without the title page. In 1815 he began to travel regularly to Rabbi Dovber of Lubavitch and, after the latter’s passing, became a disciple of Rabbi Dovber's successor, Rabbi Menachem Mendel.
