Manoah B. Shemariah Handel

Polish author; born at Brzeszticzka (), Volhynia; died in 1612. He was the author of the following works: "Ḥokmat Manoaḥ," glosses to the Talmud (printed in the Cracow 1602-5 edition of the Talmud, and separately at Prague, in 1602, by his son); "Menoaḥ ha-Lebabot," commentary to Baḥya ben Joseph's "Al-Hidayah ila Fara'iḍ al-Ḳulub" (Lublin, 1596; frequently reprinted); "Manoaḥ Maẓa Ḥen," on the title-page of which the emperor Rudolph and King Matthias are mentioned. Manoah must have composed a number of other works, for his son, who preserved those already noted, speaks of his intention to publish "all" his father's works on the Talmud, the Cabala, and astronomy.
