Isaac ben Samson Ha-Kohen, Bohemian Talmudist; died May 30, 1624, in Prague. He was assistant rabbi and magistrate of the community, and was son-in-law of the chief rabbi of Prague, Lewa ben Bezaleel, and the father of Hayyim ha-Kohen (rabbi at Frankfort-on-the-Main and at Posen) and Naphtali ha-Kohen (rabbi at Lublin). Isaac was in the habit of writing acrostic introductions to his own and other works. He wrote: a supplement to "Hatan Damim," a commentary on the Pentateuch by Samuel Runkel (Prague, 1605); glosses to "Pa'neah Raza," a small cabalistic work by Isaac ben Judah ha-Levi (ib. 1602); a commentary on the Pentateuch, in German (ib. 1608); notes on Midrash Tehillim (ib. 1613); "Kizzur Mizrahi," a commentary on Rashi to Genesis. Isaac, according to a statement in one of his glosses, was occupied for some time in the composition of a cabalistic work entitled "Sidre Bereshit." AND *see reference to Yitzhak ben Shimshon: ..native of Prague and son-in-law of Maharal (Rabbi Löw). Among other things, Yitzhak ben Shimshon was the Rabbi in Vienna and Mikulov. He was an esteemed Talmudist and philanthropist. He had published the work of older men of learning – among others, the lectures of his father-in-law (Derush al ha-Torah, Poznan, 1592) – and is considered the author of the first Yiddish translation of the Pentateuch (Basle, 1583), or at least the commentary to it (Prague, 1610). In 1592 he accompanied his father-in-law, Rabbi Löw, to an audience with Emperor Rudolf II, an account of which he also recorded. Yitzhak ben Shimshon died in 1624 and is buried in the Old Jewish Cemetery in Prague -------------------- Av Beis Din of Niklesburg --------------------
