Rabbi of Metz; father of the physician Tobias Cohn; died at Metz in 1659. Narol was rabbi and physician at Narol, Galicia, but fled to Germany during the Cossack uprising of 1648. His father was Eleazar Kohen. Narol was the author of "Sefer Birkot Ṭob," the first part of which is entitled "Keter Torah," comprising sermons on the Pentateuch, and the second part "Keter Shem-Ṭob," sermons on the Five Megillot. He wrote also "Baḳḳashah," a prayer with reference to the misfortunes of 1643 in Poland (with a commentary, Amsterdam, 1699), and a work on medicine and another on mathematics.
