Chaskuni Ben-Manoach, a learned Jew, who flourished in France about A.D. 1260. He wrote a commentary on the Pentateuch, usually styled חִזקוּנַי טֵפֶר, in which he made large use of the Midrashic literature; indeed, it is almost entirely a compilation from some twenty older annotators. It was printed by Bomberg at Venice in 1524, fol., and again at Basle in 1606, and in 1559 a carefully revised edition, by Vittorino Eliano, appeared at Cremona, 4to. It may be found also in the Biblia Magina of Moses Frankfurter (q.v.), Amst. 1724-27. — Kitto, Cyclopaedia, 1:478; Fürst, Bib. Jud. 1:171.
