German translator of the Mishnah and the Talmud born 1710 in Lindflur, Unterfranken died Feb. 12, 1798. He was city chaplain in Ansbach (Onolzbach). "This man is a strong Talmudist," wrote Moses Mendelssohn to Herder under date of Dec. 3, 1771, "and I wonder at his patience. He has translated into German the first three parts of the Babylonian and the Jerusalem Talmud, as he informs me, and has them ready for the printer, but can find no publisher for them."

Rabe's works include the following: "Mischnah oder Text des Talmuds aus dem Ebrä ischen Uebersetzt, Umschreiben und mit Anmerkungen Erlä utert," Ansbach, 1760 et seq. (reviewed by M. Mendelssohn see his "Gesammelte Schriften," 4:2, 134 et seq. ) "Der Prediger Salomo, miteiner Kurzen und Zureichenden Erklä rung nach dem Wortverstande zum Nutzen der Studirenden von dem Verfasser des ' Phä don' aus dem Hebrä ischen Uebersetzt von dem Uebersetzer der Mischnah," ib. 1771 "Der Talmudische Traktat Berachoth von den Lobsprü chen, als das Erste Buch im Ersten Theil nach der Hierosolymitischen und Babylonischen Gemara aus dem Ebrä ischen Uebersetzt und mit Anmerkungen Erlä utert," Halle, 1777 "Der Talmudische Traktat Peah von dem Ackerwinkel, Uebersetzt und Erlä utert, Nebst ciner Abhandlung von Versorgung der Armen," Ausbach, 1781.
