About The Rabbi

Rabbi Chaim Yosef David Azulai ben Yitzhak Zerachia (1724 – 1 March 1806) , commonly known as the Hida , was a Jerusalem born rabbinical scholar, a noted bibliophile, and a pioneer in the publication of Jewish religious writings.

Azulai was born in Jerusalem, where he received his education from some local prominent scholars. He was the scion of a prominent rabbinic family, the great-great-grandson of Moroccan Rabbi Abraham Azulai. The Yosef part of his name came from his mother’s father, Rabbi Yosef Bialer, a German scholar.

Rabbi Chaim Yosef David Azulai main teachers were the Yishuv haYashan rabbis Isaac HaKohen Rapoport, Shalom Sharabi, and Haim ibn Attar (the Ohr HaHaim) as well as Jonah Nabon. At an early age he showed proficiency in Talmud, Kabbalah, and Jewish history, and “by the age of 12 he was already composing chiddushim on Hilchos Melichah.


His notes were published in four booklets, comprising two sections, under the titles Shem HaGedolim[10] (The Name of the Great Ones), containing the names of authors, and Va’ad la-Ḥakhamim (Assembly of the Wise), containing the titles of works. This treatise has established for Azulai a lasting place in Jewish literature. By sound scientific methods he investigated the question of the genuineness of Rashi’s commentary to Chronicles or to some Talmudic treatise (see “Rashi,” in Shem HaGedolim). However, he does assert that Rashi indeed is the author of the “Rashi” commentary on Neviim and Ketuvim, contrary to others’ opinions.
