(i.e. Son of Dana), JACOB (See JACOB) , a Jewish rabbi, born in Spain about 1630, died in London in 1696. He was rabbi first in Amsterdam, and from 1685 till his death in London. He translated into Spanish the book of Cusari as well as the Mishna, with the commentaries of Maimonides and Bartenora. His Spicileyium rerum praeteritarum et intermissarum contains valuable philological and critical notes to the celebrated Michlal Jophi (Amsterdam, 1685). A selection from his works appeared after his death, under the title Discourses of the Ecclesiastical and Civil Polity of the Jews (Lond. 1706).
