AZARIAH, MENAHEM HA-KOHEN:

Author and translator; born at Fürth, Germany; flourished at Amsterdam in 1727. He edited Eliezer ha-Ḳaṭan's (his father-in-law's) "Shulḥan 'Aruk," an extract from the first volume of the Shulḥan 'Aruk, Fürth, 1696-97. Appended to this work is Azariah's short commentary on the thirteen hermeneutic rules. He later removed to Amsterdam, where he published in 1727 his "Meẓiat 'Azariah" (Azariah's Find), a Judæo-German translation of Moses Sulzbach's "Sam Ḥayyim" (Tincture of Life) —an ethical work in rimed prose, which he provided with an exhaustive introduction and epilogue. A second edition of this translation was published at Zolkiew, Galicia, 1795.
