HALBERSTADT, JUDAH BEN BENJAMIN (also STADTHAGEN):

Rabbinical author of the eighteenth century. He was the author of "Minḥat Yehudah," giving explanations of all passages in Rashi on Berakot in which the word "ke-lomar" occurs. A similar work on Shabbat, 'Erubin, and Berakot appeared later (Altona, 1768). He was also the author of a discourse on "Ẓenon we-Zayit" (Ber. 36a), on the benediction to be recited on eating radishes and olives (Altona, 1765).
