Maggid (Hebrew: מַגִּיד), sometimes spelled as magid, is a traditional Eastern European Jewish religious itinerant preacher, skilled as a narrator of Torah and religious stories. A preacher of the more scholarly sort was called a “darshan”, and usually occupied the official position of rabbi. The title of “maggid mesharim” (= “a preacher of uprightness”; abbreviated מ”מ) probably dates from the sixteenth century.
