Hladik, Abraham

Resource Toolbox

Bohemian Talmudist flourished about 1230. The name indicates a Czech origin, an assumption supported by the fact that in his commentary on the seliḥ ot he often explains Hebrew by means of Bohemian words. He seems, however, to have lived in France, according to Zunz, and was the teacher of Hezekiah b. Jacob of Magdeburg. He is often quoted in the Budapest and Vienna manuscripts of the "Mordechai ben Hillel" as well as in a manuscript of De Rossi, in the last under the name of "Abraham Hadlik." In addition to these Talmudic decisions of Abraham there have been preserved minhagim by him for the whole year (Codex De Rossi, Parma, No 506) and a seliḥ ah commentary in manuscript (Munich, No. 346). Perles attempts to identify Abraham Hladik with Abraham b. Azriel, author of "Arugat ha-Bosem."
