YAḲḲAR BEN SAMUEL HA-LEVI I.:

German scholar of the eleventh century; lived for a short time in Speyer. He was a pupil of Kalonymus of Rome, and questions addressed by him to Kalonymus have been preserved ("Shibbole ha-Leḳet," viii.); several of these referred to a custom observed among the Jews of Speyer only. The same subject is treated by Mordecai ("B. M." ix.).
