Galician author of the end of the seventeenth century. He was the author of "Sugyot ha-Talmud," a methodology of the Talmud and its commentaries (Zolkiev, 1693). According to the preface, the author was a resident of Zolkiev, and his work met with the approval of contemporary scholars. It is divided into forty paragraphs and deals especially with the discursive terminology of the Talmud. As the author asserts, it is based upon the teachings of those scholars whose pupil he had been. The work was translated into Latin by H. I. v. Bashuysen, and was published in the Latin translation of Joshua Levi b. Joseph's "Halikot 'Olam" (pp. 363 et seq., Hanover, 1714).
