Polish rabbi; born probably in Yaroslav, Galicia, in 1648; died at Fürth in 1700. He was rabbi successively in Gross Meseritẓ, Moravia; Tomaszow, Russian Poland; and Fürth, Bavaria. Heilprin was the author of "Siaḥ ha-Se'uddah," festive discourses delivered on the occasion of finishing the study of several tractates of the Talmud. This work and some of his responsa and novellæ are still extant in manuscript (Neubauer, "Cat. Bodl. Hebr. MSS." Nos. 469, 470).
