LAGARTO, JACOB:

South-American rabbi and Talmudist of the seventeenth century; probably a son of Simon Lagarto of Amsterdam. He went to Brazil when a young man, and about 1680 was ḥakam of the Jews at Tamarica. He was the author of a work entitled "Ohel Ya'aḳob" or "Tienda de Jacob," conjectured by Wolf ("Bibl. Hebr." iii. 1066b) to have contained Talmudic aphorisms. Kayserling thinks it was not written in America.
