Rabbi Yaakov Yitzchak Halevi Horowitz, known as the Chozeh of Lublin (1745 – 1815) was a disciple of Rabbi Elimelech of Lizhensk and one of the most renowned rebbes in Poland in the late 18th century. Known to have spiritual vision due to having been careful not to see forbidden sights when he young, and therefore he was known as the Chozeh [seer]. After the death of his rabbi the Noam Elimelech he became the leader of the chassidic world in Galicia and Poland, a status he retained until his death thirty years later. He focused his teachings on the obligation of the tzadik to help his disciples in the material, day-to-day field, but despite this he also had success with renowned scholars who surrounded him, such as Rabbi Yaakov Yitzchak of Peshischa (Hayehudi Hakadosh), Rabbi Yitzchak Kalish and Rabbi Simcha Bunim of Peshischa (who were brought by his student Rabbi David Biderman of Lelov). His renowned disciple who was very close to him was Rabbi Naftali Zvi Horowitz of Ropshitz, author of Zera Kodesh.
