ABTERODE (APTROD), DAVID:
(Redirected from APTROD, DAVID.)
Rabbinical writer; great-grandfather of David Sinzheim; probably born at Abterode near Frankfort-on-the-Main, in which town he lived toward the end of the seventeenth and at the beginning of the eighteenth century. He wrote commentaries on the "Sefer Ḥasidim" and on the "Yoẓerot" (Liturgies for Festivals); but the manuscripts were completely destroyed by the great fire in that city in 1711. His son Solomon Zalman rewrote from memory the commentary on "Sefer Ḥasidim," and published it in 1724.
