EPHRAIM B. GERSHON:

Turkish preacher and physician of the middle of the fifteenth century; lived in Negropont and Constantinople. He was a friend of Mordecai Comtino and Samuel Bueno, for the funeral of whose sister he composed a sermon. His sermons, still extant in manuscript, are interesting as literary and historical documents. He was probably the teacher of Elijah Mizraḥi.
