MENAHEM OF TIKTIN (MaHaRaM TIKTIN; MENAHEM DAVID BEN ISAAC):

Polish rabbi and author of the sixteenth century; pupil of Moses Isserles. Menahem occupied himself with emending and annotating various texts; his notes on the halakot of Isaac Alfasi and Mordecai b. Hillel have been published under the title "Haggahot Maharam Tiktin." These "haggahot" were first published by Menahem's son Asher (Cracow, 1597-1598), and have since been republished in the editions of Alfasi. According to Asher b. Menahem (preface to his edition of the "Haggahot"), Menahem wrote many other works, and particularly notes to the Targum, to the commentaries of Rashi and Naḥmanides, to the prayers and piyyuṭim, to the Zohar and other cabalistic works.
