Description
   Sayings and parables following the Alpha Bet. The Author, R. Abraham b. Jehiel ha-Kohen Porto, was a member of an Italian family prominent during the 16th and 17th centuries. Its members were scattered in various Italian towns, notably Mantua, Venice, Verona, and Rome. The family originated in Germany, from the Rafa (Rabe, "raven") family, which settled in the town of Porto in the province of Verona, and from which the noted Rapoport family was descended.
