LISKER, ABRAHAM BEN ḤAYYIM:
Russian rabbi of the seventeenth century; native of Brest-Litovsk. After studying in the yeshibot of Lublin and Cracow, Lisker was called to the rabbinate of Rossiena, in the government of Kovno. He was the author of "Be'er Abraham," a commentary on the six orders of the Mishnah and based upon preceding commentaries, to which he added his own novellæ under the title "Me Be'er." Only that part of his commentary that deals with the first three orders has been published: Zera'im (Frankfort-on-the-Oder, 1665) and Mo'ed and Nashim (ib. 1683).
