German Talmudist; flourished in the second half of the thirteenth century. Probably he was a pupil of R. Meir of Rothenburg (died 1293), to whom he applied for decisions in difficult ritualistic cases. He also maintained a learned correspondence with his relative, Asher ben Jehiel (born 1250; died 1327), also a pupil of R. Meir, and did not interrupt it even when Asher emigrated to Spain in 1302.
