ZAUSMER, JACOB DAVID BEN ISAAC:

Polish Masorite of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries; rabbi of Zausmer, near Cracow; died before 1644. He was the author of the "Perush ha-Massorah" and of the "Ṭa'ame ha-Massorah" (Lublin, 1616); the former work elucidating Masoretic problems and forming a supplement to the "Sha'ar Shibre Luḥot" of Elijah Levita's "Massoret ha-Massoret," while the "Ṭa'ame ha-Massorah" was a commentary on the Masorah. A revised and augmented edition was published by his son Judah Isaac Darshan (ib. 1644), who speaks of his father as having died.
