Detail Description

Responsa by R. Israel Meir b. Joseph Mizrahi (d. 1755-1749), Palestinian rabbi; head of the yeshiva of Jerusalem in the first half of the eighteenth century. He distinguished himself as a rabbinical scholar at an early age, and although he died when still young, he left important works. In 1727 he was sent to Constantinople to collect alms; and there he published his responsa collection "Peri ha-Arez," followed by a "Ḳontres" containing novellæ to Maimonides' "Yad" and its commentaries. He wrote also "Ner Mizrahi," a commentary on Elijah Mizrahi's novellae to the "Semag," and "Tif'eret Yisrael," sermons. Both of these works remain unpublished.
