Printer and author; lived at Prague in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. He was the author of a work entitled "Hanhagot Yisrael," a treatise on the education of children, the first edition of which is anonymous (Frankfort-on-the-Oder, 1712). In the same year Israel established, or helped to establish, a printing business at Wilmersdorf; but his name, followed by the letters , appears only on two works of 1712: the "Bet Abot" of Moses Heilburg and the Talmudic treatise Beẓah.
