HAUSEN, MOSES BEN ASHER ANSHEL:
Danish Talmudic scholar: born at Copenhagen 1752; died June 28, 1782. He wrote a work entitled "Ḳaran Or Pene Mosheh," a homiletic commentary to Genesis (Hamburg, 1787). Zedner and Benjacob attribute the authorship of this work to a Meïr b. Isaac, also of Copenhagen; while Azulai ("Shem ha-Gedolim," ii. 132) says that the author's name is not mentioned.
