BRANDEIS, BARUCH JUDAH (HA-LEVI):
Bohemian rabbi and author; lived in the second half of the eighteenth and the beginning of the nineteenth century at Prague, where he was assistant rabbi (dayyan). He was the son of Bezaleel Brandeis, rabbi in Jung-Bunzlau, whose work, "Ẓedah-Baruk," he published. Brandeis wrote "Leshon Ḥakamim," Prague, 1815, in two parts, a work intended as a reference-book on regulations governing the reading of the Torah, ḳaddish, burial of the dead, and mourning observances. The book, however, is incomplete and fragmentary, and is written in a heavy, ambiguous style.
