POSNER, DAVID BEN NAPHTALI HERZ:
Polish Talmudic compiler; lived about the middle of the seventeenth century in Posen, and later in Krotoschin. He was the author of "Yalḳuṭ Dawid" (Dyhernfurth, 1691), homiletic collectanea on the Pentateuch from the Talmud, the Midrasbim, and the post-Talmudic authors. The work was edited by his father, Naphtali Herz Spitz. Fuenn's opinion ("Keneset Yisrael," p. 248) that David is identical with David Tebele Posner, author of "Sha'are Ẓiyyon," seems to be erroneous.
