He served as rabbi of Urișor and Marosújvár (Ocna Mureș), and in 1903, succeeded his father in Deyzh. He was a wonder-worker, who brought about salvations with the power of his prayers, and "thousands of Jewish people were saved through his holy prayers, including some cases which had no natural solution, only through a miracle, and all was effected through his exceptional holiness and holy prayers" (Kol Bochim, Deyzh, 1930, p. 9). His book Knesset Yechezkel on the Torah was published after his passing (Cluj Napoca, 1931).

The printing press of R.

Elimelech MiLizhensk, Jerusalem, 1963, p. 311, who quotes an oral tradition [in the name of R. Moshe Halberstam], on the unique qualities of R. Shlomo Yarish's edition of the Noam Elimelech, which "was printed by G-d fearing workers, who worked in sanctity and purity, and some were of the 36 hidden righteous ones upon whom the world stands").
