Assessor of the Rabbinate of Prague for 30 years and a known Kabbalist

Jewishencyclopedia: Benjamin Wolf Spira #5: Son of Jehiel Spira; died at Prague Oct. 12, 1630. He was for more than thirty years associate rabbi and director of a Talmudic academy in that city. Although universally respected his extraordinary modesty prevented him from accepting the chief rabbinate of Prague; but he took charge of it temporarily from 1629 until his death
