ASHKENAZI, SIMON, OF GALICIA:

Rabbi of Dobromil and Jaroslav (Galicia) at the end of the eighteenth and the beginning of the nineteenth century. He was a disciple of R. Jacob Isaac of Lublin (died 1815), and carried on a learned correspondence with Jacob Meshullam Orenstein, chief rabbi of Lemberg (died 1839). Ashkenazi wrote "NaḦalat Shim'on" (Simon's Inheritance), a series of cabalistic dissertations on the Pentateuch (1815; 2d ed., Lemberg, 1848).
