SAMUEL (SANWEL) BEN AARON BENJAMIN:

Scribe at Worms in the seventeenth century. After the fire of 1689 (Lewysohn, "Nafshot Ẓaddiḳim," p. 73, Frankfort-on-the-Main, 1855) he left Worms and settled in Hamburg. He was the author of "Ḥidah Mezuḳḳaḳah u-Ẓerufah," a rimed riddle on the subject of tobacco (Hamburg, 1693). His "Shir," a poem on the Pentateuch dedicated to the Talmudical students in Worms, bears the acrostic "Samuel of Worms" (; Hamburg, 1692).
