Rabbi in Lissa; born at Peisern, Poland, about 1690. He was the author of "Naḥalat Shim'oni," an important work of reference consisting of four sections: (1) onomasticon of the Bible, quoting all haggadot which are found in the Babylonian Talmud, the Midrash Rabbah, and the five Megillot, and which concern Biblical persons; with marginal notes, "'En Rogel," which give all parallel passages; (2) onomasticon of all the teachers of the Mishnah in the Babylonian Talmud; (3, 4) onomasticon of the teachers of the baraitot and the Amoraim. The first two sections were published at Wandsbeck in 1728; sections 3 and 4, as well as his Talmudic methodology, are as yet unpublished.
