SASON, JACOB BEN ISRAEL:

Palestinian Talmudist; flourished at Safed at the end of the seventeenth century; a pupil of Isaac Alfandari. He was the author of "Bene Ya'aḳob" (Constantinople, 1714), consisting of a commentary on a part of Isaac b. Abba Mari's "Sefer ha-'Iṭṭur," and fourteen responsa and novellæ on Maimonides' "Yad" and on Jacob b. Asher's four Ṭurim. Owing to Sason's premature death (at the age of thirty-one), this work was left unfinished.
