Menachem ben Solomon Meiri
Rabbi Menachem ben Solomon
Meiri was a Provincial scholar and commentator of the Talmud. He summarized
the teachings of his predecessors of the previous three centuries. His
literary activity covered halachic
rulings, talmudic exposition, biblical thought, customs, ethics, and
philosophy. Meiri summarized the subject matter of the Talmud giving both
the meaning and the halacha derived from it. He utilized all the rabbinic
literature available to him, so that his work may be considered a digest
which gives a synoptic and comprehensive presentation of the whole
expository and halachic activity up to his own time.
