Faraji, Jacob al

Resource Toolbox

Rabbi at Alexandria, Egypt, in the middle of the seventeenth century brother-in-law of Shabbethai Nawawi, rabbi of Rashid, and teacher of Samuel Laniado. Al-Faraji was the author of responsa, extracts from which were incorporated in the collection "Birke Yosef," published by Azulai at Leghorn in 1774-76. As shown by one of his responsa inserted in "Ginnat Weradim" by Abraham ben Mordecai ha-Levi (Constantinople, 1716-18), Al-Faraji was an able grammarian and a good Hebrew stylist.
