SHABABO , JESHUA:
Egyptian scribe and rabbi; lived in the last quarter of the seventeenth century. His teachers were Rabbis Abraham ha-Levi of Cairo and Joseph Nazir, who afterward became his father-in-law (see Joseph Nazir ben Ḥayyim Moses ha-Levi). The relation between teacher and pupil may be inferred from the fact that Abraham ha-Levi included some dissertations of his pupil in his work "Ginnat Weradim." The two men differed in opinion, and the pupil answered his teacher in "Peraḥ Shushan" (Constantinople, 1732). Besides, he wrote "Sha'are Orah," "Sha'are Torah," and a large work in two parts entitled "Sha'are Yeshu'ah," containing responsa. Shababo was for some time a sofer, but resigned this office from religious motives when he was appointed dayyan of Cairo.
