Aaron ben Eliezer Lipman

Rabbi of the town of Zempelburg, West Prussia, formerly included in the kingdom of Poland; flourished toward the middle of the seventeenth century. He was an intimate friend of Shabbethai Hurwitz, rabbi of Prague. His work, "Ḳorban Aharon" (The Offering of Aaron), was first published at Amsterdam, in 1646, and has gone through several editions. It summarizes in alphabetical order the decisions which R. Moses Isserles (RMA) has laid down in his ritualistic work, "Torat Ḥaṭat." Aaron is also known as the author of an acrostic meditation (teḥinnah), beginning "Elohai dalfah 'eni" (My eye droppeth tears, O my God!).
