Rabbi of the Livornian community of Tunis; died in that city in 1850. After his death his family defrayed the expenses of the publication of his works, "Nishal David," "Ohel David," both containing responsa (Leghorn, 1857); "Mo'ed David," a commentary on "'Abodat ha-Ḳodesh" of Solomon Adret (Jerusalem, 1887); "Maḥaneh David," and various treatises on ritual divorce (ib. 1889). In collaboration with Judah Levy of Gibraltar he wrote "Dai Hashab"—responsa on the command to women not to show their hair (Leghorn, 1846); and "Dai Heshib"—a commentary on the treatise Sanhedrin (ib. 1846). He also edited some works of his father and of others.
