Polish Talmudist and printer of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. His name is generally followed by the word ("Troppau"?). In 1608 he edited at Lublin the "Yen ha-Reḳaḥ" of Eleazar of Worms, to which he added notes of his own. The name "Reuben" is missing in his signature. From 1626 to 1628 he worked as corrector of the Hanau edition of Joseph Caro's Shulḥan 'Aruk. He was the author of "Shib'im Temarim" (Cracow, 1626), a seventy-fold interpretation of Prov. xiv. 23.
