The unedited full-text of the 1906 Jewish Encyclopedia


In an edition of the Pesiḳta Rabbati by Buber (xiv. 64a) occurs the word , written incorrectly for = καταδίκη ("punishment," "penance"). Buber, however, in his preface (p. 80) attempts to identify this with the name of one Yiẓḥaḳ of Carthage mentioned in Ber. 29a; but according to Bacher such a person never existed. The confusion may have arisen from the fact that Yer. Ber. 8a and Ta'an. 65c mention an Abba of Carthage who transmitted in the name of R. Yiẓḥaḳ.
