Aaron Abba ha-Levi ben Johanan

A prominent rabbi; born about the close of the sixteenth century; died in Lemberg, June 18, 1643. He was president of a rabbinical college in Lemberg. His decisions are found in the responsa of Abraham Rapoport, Joel Särkes, and Meir Lublin; the last-named especially speaks very highly of him. While he hardly presents an individual type, it may be stated that in one case he condemns rigorism in the Law.
