Rabbi Zvi Hirsch Kalisher (1795-1875), one of the foremost disciples of Rabbi Akiva Eiger, he was a tremendous genius in both the hidden and revealed disciplines of the Torah and even extensively studied Jewish philosophy. At the age of 29 he was appointed as rabbi of the city of Toron in west Prussia, a position he remained in until the end of his life. In addition, he longed to return to the Land of Israel, as can be seen by his series of books named ‘Drishat Zion’ that deal with the law of settling the Land of Israel and the mitzvot special to the Land of Israel and the sacrifices.
