Resource Toolbox

German Hebraist born June 14, 1813, at Breslau died March 9, 1885. In 1848 he settled as a merchant at Posen. After his retirement from business, in 1871, he prepared a large Hebrew commentary on the Targum Onḳ elos, which was published posthumously by his son-in-law Joseph Perles, under the title "Bi' ure Onḳ elos" (Munich, 1888). This commentary, which contains many valuable critical and exegetical notes, is one of the most important reference works on the Targum Onḳ elos.
