English teacher and Hebrew writer; born in 1828; died at London April 30, 1892; son of Rabbi Isaac Sebag. He was educated in the orphan school of the Portuguese congregation, London, subsequently becoming master of the Sha'are Tiḳwah School. On the death of Ḥazzan De Sola, Sebag acted temporarily as reader in the Bevis Marks Synagogue. In 1852 he wrote a Hebrew primer which was for a long time the chief text-book for Hebrew instruction among Jewish children in England; and several of his Hebrew poems and odes written for special occasions were printed.
