ELEAZAR BEN MOSES HA-DARSHAN OF WUERZ-BURG

ELEAZAR BEN MOSES HA-DARSHAN OF WUERZ-BURG
ELEAZAR BEN MOSES HA-DARSHAN OF WUERZ-BURG (mid-13th century), one of the later writers of the hasidei ashkenaz from the school of judah b. samuel he-Hasid and eleazar of Worms. His father Moses was Judah's brother-in-law. None of his writings has been published. Two of his works, however, are found in manuscripts: a commentary on Sefer Yeẓirah , cited by abraham abulafia , the 13th-century kabbalist, and parts of his commentary on the Torah, which uses mainly the system of gematria and is known as Sefer ha-Gematriyyot. Probably portions of his other works are scattered in 13th-century Ashkenazi exegetical literature, and many quotations are found in the writings of later scholars, e.g., his son Moses b. Eleazar. -BIBLIOGRAPHY: M. Szulwas: in: Alummah, 1 (1936), 152–3; Kitvei A. Epstein, 1 (1950), 213–44; J. Freimann, Sefer Hasidim (19242), 3 (introd.); Urbach, Tosafot, 445; G.
