Resource Toolbox

Russian rabbi died at Grodno July 1, 1749. He was rabbi and chief of the yeshibah of Lucicz, Volhynia, Russia. Elisha was the author of "Ḳ ab we-Naḳ i," a short commentary on the Mishnah (Amsterdam, 1697), and he annotated and published, under the title "Pi Shenayim" (Altona, 1735), Asheri's commentary on the Mishnah of Zera' im. According to Benjacob ("Oẓ ar ha-Sefarim," p. 382, No. 2489), the first edition of the "Ḳ ab we-Naḳ i" was published in 1664 from this fact it may be concluded that Elisha lived to be more than a hundred years old.
