Judah ben Eliezer ha-Levi Minz:

http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/view.jsp?artid=647&letter=M&a...

Italian rabbi; born about 1408; died at Padua in 1508. He was the most prominent rabbi of his time. He officiated as rabbi of Padua for forty-seven years, during which time he had a great number of pupils, among whom were his son Abraham Minz and the latter's son-in-law Mer Katzenellenbogen. In a quarrel he had with Elijah Delmedigo he was supported by Elijah Mizraḥi (comp. Joseph Solomon Delmedigo, "Maẓref la-Ḥokmah," p. 3b; idem, "Elim," p. 29; Mizraḥi, Responsa, No. 56). It appears from Solomon Luria's responsa (No. 6) that Minz was the author of a number of ordinances ("taḳḳanot") at Padua. According to Ghirondi, he was professor of philosophy at the University of Padua. Ghirondi further states that in recognition of Minz's services as professor the authorities of the university placed his portrait, with an appreciative inscription, in the hall of the university, over the staircase. But it is very likely that Ghirondi confounded Minz with Elijah Delmedigo or Abraham de Balmes, both of whom lectured on philosophy before Christian audiences. In the sack of Padua soon after Minz's death almost all of hiswritings were destroyed. Joseph b. Abraham Minz, his grandson, discovered sixteen of his responsa, and these were published (Venice, 1553) by Mer Katzenellenbogen, who printed in the same volume his own responsa and the "Seder Giṭṭin wa-Ḥaliẓah" of Abraham Minz. These responsa have been edited, and supplemented with an extended commentary and preface, by Johanan ben Moses Preschel (Munkacs, 1898). Judah's responsa, though scanty, afford interesting information on the history of his age and on Jewish customs in Padua.


Rabbi in Padua. Born in Mainz 1408. Died 1507. Influential in Padua for 47 years. Was acknowledged as a Rabinical Authority. His school was a meeting place for youth (xii 41).
