HELIN, JACOB MOSES BEN ABRAHAM ASHKENAZI:

Polish Talmudist; born about 1625; died about 1700. He studied at Lublin under R. Naphtali ha-Kohen and R. Heshel, and was the son-in-law of Löb Heller, rabbi of Satanow. Helin was the author of "Yede Mosheh," a commentary with critical notes on Midrash Rabbah, indicating the Talmudical sources from which the legends are taken, published by his son Abraham with a preface and notes (Frankfort-on-the-Oder, 1705; 2d ed., 1713; now printed in all the editions of the Midrash).
