German liturgist; probably lived at Posen toward the end of the seventeenthcentury; author of "Meïr Elohim" (n.p., n.d.), a collection of Biblical passages to be recited on entering the synagogue, and ethical directions for prayer. Meïr says in this work that he wrote two "Menorot" containing collections of prayers, and Steinschneider thinks that the "Menorah" printed at Prague in 1696 may be one of them.
