Chabib, Jacob Ibn

Chabib, Jacob ibn a Jewish writer early in the 16th century, was a native of Zamora. He was one of the Spanish exiles who had settled at Saloniki, in Asia Minor. He is the author of a collection of hagadic sentences from the Talmud, to which he added explanations of his own and of others, under the title of, עֵין יִעֲקֹב, Fountain of Jacob, more commonly known as the Fountain of Israel, עֵין יַשֹרָאֵל (Constantinople, 1516, and often since; last edition, Berlin, 1874,5 vols.). From this work, Genebrard made his compilation, entitled Collectanea, de Rebus Christi Regis, which he translated into Latin, and published with his Latin translation of the Seder Olam Suta (Paris, 1572).
