ALPRON, JACOB:

Italian translator; died Dec. 22, 1622. He adapted and translated into Italian Benjamin ben Abraham of Solnik's "Miẓwot Nashim" (Precepts for Women) for the use of Jewish women in Italy. The translation became very popular and went through several editions at Padua and Venice (1625, 1652, and 1710). The name Alpron is corrupted from Heilprin = Heilbronn.
