Resource Toolbox

A contemporary of Moses Benveniste lived at Constantinople about the middle of the seventeenth century. He wrote a commentary on the "Sefer ha-Miẓ wot" of Maimonides, in which he defended him against the attacks of Naḥ manides. He published this work at Constantinople, in 1652, under the title "Leb Sameaḥ " (A Gladsome Heart)— referring thereby to his own name, Allegri. Under the same title a number of his responsa were published in Salonica, 1793.
