Alexanderson (ben Alexander), Daniel

Theological writer of the seventeenth century. He embraced the Christian faith at Rouen (France) on April 21, 1621, and wrote in Syriac (rabbinic?) an open letter, setting forth the reason of his abandoning Judaism and calling upon his former coreligionists to do likewise. The letter was translated into several European languages and went through two English editions (London, 1688 and 1703).
