Jacob Isaac Horowitz (Hebrew: יעקב יצחק הורוביץ),
known as The Seer of Lublin" (החוזה מלובלין), ha-Chozeh
MiLublin; c. 1745 - August 15, 1815) was a Hasidic rebbe from Poland.
A leading figure in the early Hasidic movement, he became known as the
"seer" or "visionary" due to his purported ability to gaze across
great distance by supernatural means. He was a disciple of the Maggid
of Mezritch. He continued his studies under Rabbi Shmelke of
Nilkolsburg and Rabbi Elimelech of Lizhensk. He lived for a while in
Lantzut before moving to Lublin.
After Yaakov Yitzchak moved to Lublin, thousands of Hasidim flocked to
learn from him. Among his disciples were such Hasidic luminaries as
Divrei Emet Zot Zikaron Zikaron Zot Zikaron Tov
