Elijah Benamozegh

Elijah Benamozegh, was a 19th-century Italian Sephardic Orthodox rabbi and a renowned kabbalist, philosopher, and biblical commentator. He began working in commerce, spending his leisure time studying, but soon abandoned his commercial career to fully focus on his scholarship. Benamozegh served as rabbi of Livorno, Italy, for 50 years, and established a printing press there. He was known for his use of non-Jewish religious and academic sources in his writing, and some of his published works elicited fierce controversy.
