Abiezer, Judah ben Isaac, of Tiktin

A Jewish author of the nineteenth century. He resided in Jerusalem and wrote "Mishmeret haBerit" (The Charge of the Covenant), a defense of Judaism against the irreligious, published in Jerusalem, 1846; "Sha'are Ẓedeḳ" (The Gates of Justice), upon the prerogatives of the Holy Land and upon the sufferings of Jerusalem and of Safed in this century (Jerusalem, 1848); "Meḳor ha-Berakah" (The Source of Blessing), being the first part of a work in three volumes, called "Berakah Meshuleshet" (The Threefold Benediction), upon the Talmudical treatise Berakot (Lemberg, 1851). He is considered a great authority among rabbinical writers, and his work, "Sha'are Ẓedeḳ," is full of interesting details concerning Palestine. [A copy with his autograph in the New York Public Library shows that his second name was Judah, though this is not mentioned in the title-pages of his works or in bibliographies. H. R.]
