TIKTINER, JUDAH LÖB BEN SIMḤAH:
Russian rabbi of the eighteenth century. He officiated as ab bet din in Zagora, and later was a resident of Wilna. Tiktiner was the author of "Shalme Simḥah" (2 vols., Wilna, 1806), containing novellæ on the halakot of Asher ben Jehiel, preceded by a presentation of various basal principles of the Talmud, as well as of various casuistic writings. The work is, however, incomplete, extending only as far as the treatise Ta'anit.
