A cabalistic writer who lived at Pesaro (Italy) about the end of the fifteenth century and was probably a Spanish exile. He wrote a book entitled "Liḳḳute Shikḥah u-Peah" (Gleanings), a cabalistic commentary on haggadic portions of the Talmud. In its preface the author gives some detail of his life. It was published, together with Joseph ben Ḥayyim's commentary on the Ten Sefirot, and Joseph Giquitilla's treatise on cabalistic subjects, Ferrara, 1556.
