Falero, Abraham Aboab

Resource Toolbox

Portuguese philanthropist died at Verona 1642. At the beginning of the seventeenth century or perhaps even at the end of the sixteenth he settled at Hamburg. There he built a synagogue, named "Keter Torah," for the Portuguese community. He founded yeshibot wherever he could, his activity in this respect extending even to Palestine, and he was known as one who spent large sums in the ransom of captives. Toward the close of his life he went to Verona to see his son R. Samuel Aboab, and died there.
