A Short Tribute

Hakham Abraham Halevi was in Egypt in 1659. He studied in the yeshiva founded by his father, Mordecai, in the town of Rosetta, Egypt (now called Rashid). After his father immigrated to Jerusalem, Hakham Abraham Halevi served as its Rosh Yeshiva. He too gained the merit of eventually immigrating to Jerusalem.

Hakham Abraham Halevi passed away in 1712. We do not know the date of his passing, and commemorate it on the 7th of Adar [the date of Moses' passing, the souls of all Israel's sages being traditionally considered included within the soul of our Teacher Moses.

Hakham Abraham Halevi authored Darcei No'am, a book of Responsa that were published in the Ginat Vradim anthology, while additional commentaries and halachic content he wrote were collated in Gan Hamelech. His student Hakham Yeshua Shbabo wrote a commentary on Ginat Vradim, which was printed in Perakh Shushan. His book Ginat Vradim has had enormous influence on all the sages of the people of Israel.
