Resource Toolbox

Palestinian Talmudist died at Safed about 1583. He was a pupil of Joseph Caro . After the death of his master, Gallico was nominated chief of the yeshibah of Safed. He is frequently mentioned in the responsa collection "Abḳ at Rokel," in which responsum No. 84 belongs to him. Ḥ ayyim Benvenisti quotes Gallico's responsa in his "Keneset ha-Gedolah." Gallico wrote homiletic-allegorical commentaries on Ecclesiastes (published during the author's lifetime, Venice, 1577), on Esther (Venice, 1583), and on Song of Songs (Venice, 1587).
