Eliezer Ben-judah

Eliezer ben-Judah (sometimes called ELEAZAR GARMIZA, but apparently without good reason), of Worms, the son of Kalonymos of Mentz, was one of the most distinguished Rabbins of the 13th century. He was a pupil of Judah the Saint, and died in 1238; He wrote thirty works, of which only a few have been printed. The principal ones are: Yoreh Chatcinz חֲטָאַים יוֹרֶה, "he will instruct sinners") a liturgical and ascetic formulary (Venice, 1589, 8vo, and often):Yeyn ha-Rekach (יֵין הָרֶקִח, "wine of spicery"), a cabalistic commentary on Canticles and Ruth (Lublin, 1608, 4to): — Sepher

Rokeach (סֵפֶר רֹקֵחִ, "spiced book"), on the fear of God and repentance (Fano, 1505, fol., and often since): — פֵּרוּשׁ, etc., a commentary on the cabalistic book Jezirah (Mantua, 1562, 4to, and since): — לַמּוּטַים, etc., a cabalistic exposition of the Pentateuch (extracts in Azulai's נִחִל קדוּמַים, Leghorn, 1800): — סוֹדֵי רָזִיָּא, on angelology (in pait, Amst. 1701, 4to). Several of his works in MS. are at the Bibliotheque de l'Oratoire at Paris. — Hoefer, Nouv. Biogr. Gener. 15:826-7; Grasse, Allgem. Literargesch. 3:521; Furst, Bibliotheca Judaica, 1:228. (J.H.W.)
