CANTON, ISAAC BERECHIAH:

Italian Talmudist; flourished about the middle of the eighteenth century in Turin, in which city he established a yeshibah. He is the author of a responsum in Simson Morpurgo's "Shemesh Ẓedaḳah" (Yoreh De'ah, 12). Ghirondi possessed in manuscript some other halakic decisions by Canton, and saw also a manuscript work of his entitled "Yetad ha-Ohel" (The Pin of the Tent), an index to Solomon Urbino's dictionary of Hebrew synonyms entitled "Ohel Mo'ed."
