Isaac Ben Abraham of Neustadt

Resource Toolbox

Dutch cabalist lived at Amsterdam in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. He was an assistant rabbi at Amsterdam, where he devoted himself to the editing of cabalistic works. In 1701 he published, from a manuscript he had in his possession, the "Sefer Raziel ha-Gadol" of Eleazar of Worms, in the preface to which Isaac expresses his firm belief that the book possesses the virtue of protecting from fire the house in which it, or a copy of it, is kept. He reedited the cabalistic treatises "Sefer ha-Malbush," "Sefer Noaḥ ," "Sefer ha-Mazzalot," "Shi' ur Ḳ omah," "Tefillot," and "Ma' asch Bereshit." In the same year he edited and published "Zohar he- Ḥ adash," "Midrash ha-Ne' elam," "Sitre Torah," "Tiḳ ḳ unim," "Liḳ ḳ uṭ im," and the Zohar on the Five Scrolls. His son Lö b added to the "Zohar he- Ḥ adash" a vocabulary to the two Zohars, extracted from the "Imre Binah" of Issachar Bä r.
