Polish scholar; lived at Kleczewo in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. He was the author of a twofold commentary on Jedaiah Bedersi's "Beḥinat 'Olam," published with the text at Frankfort-on-the-Oder (1792). The first part, entitled "Migdenot Eleazar," deals with the interpretation of the text; the second, entitled "Ha-Mazkir," contains the vocabulary. Eleazar wrote twofold commentaries also, under similar titles, on Benjamin Musafia's "Zeker Rab" and on Abraham ibn Ezra's "Ḥidah," which he published with the text, the former at Altona (1807), and the latter, under the general title "Ḥomat Esh," at Breslau (1799), with an appendix containing literary essays by Eleazar and also enigmas.
