Resource Toolbox

Ethical writer lived at Frankfort-on-the-Main at the end of the seventeenth century and the beginning of the eighteenth. Elhanan published in Judæ o-German an ethical work, "Simḥ at ha-Nefesh" (Frankfort-on-the-Main, 1707). The book enjoyed great popularity and was reprinted many times. The eminent woman preacher Vö gele der Maggid frequently referred to the book, and Berthold Auerbach mentions it in his "Dichter und Kaufmann" (ed. 1855, p. 54). Twenty years later Elhanan published under the same title a work containing poems and music (Fü Ruth 1727 ). He occupied himself also with Biblical exegesis and published "Ḥ iddushim," novellæ on the Pentateuch (Offenbach, 1722).
