Mattersdorf, Joab Ben Jeremiah

Resource Toolbox

Hungarian rabbi died about 1807. Through the influence of Aaron Chorin, a disciple of his father, he became rabbi of Deutschkreuz, near Mattersdorf, Hungary. He wrote "Ḥ en Ṭ ob" (Zolkiev, 1806), commentary on a part of the code Eben ha-' Ezer, to which is added "Zebed Ṭ ob," on the same code, by his son-in-law Isaac (Eisik) ben Lippmann Frä nkel. Joab wrote also: "Sha' are Binah," novellæ to Isaac ben Reuben Alfasi's "Sha' are Shebu' ot," Vienna, 1792. Like Joseph Caro, Marcus Benedict, and others, Mattersdorf mistook this Isaac ben Reuben for a grandson of Isaac Alfasi (see Jew. Encyc. 1:377, s.v. Alfasi, Isaac ben Reuben ).
