LYONS, ISRAEL:

Hebrew teacher and author; born in Poland; died 1770. He emigrated to England and settled in Cambridge. Here he practised the craft of silversmith and acquired a reputation as a Hebrew scholar. This led to his appointment as "teacher of the Hebrew tongue" in the University of Cambridge. He wrote "The Scholar's Instructor, or Hebrew Grammar, with Many Additions and Emendations Which the Author Has Found Necessary in His Long Course of Teaching Hebrew," a second edition of which appeared in 1757 and a fourth in 1823, while his treatise "Observations and Enquiries Relating to Various Parts of Scripture History" was printed by the Cambridge Press in 1768 and published by subscription.
