Cabalist, and rabbi at Lockacze, Poland, in the middle of the seventeenth century. Bina was the author of "Zer Zahab" (Crown of Gold), Cracow, 1647, an alphabetical index to, and extracts and explanations from, the Zohar and Midrash. At the end are novellæ on many Talmudical passages. A considerable portion of the work was translated into Latin by Knorr von Rosenroth in "Cabbala Denudata." Steinschneider ("Cat. Bodl." col. 545) incorrectly cites Bina as "Baruch" (see Zedner, "Cat. Hebr. Books Brit. Mus." p. 152).
