R. Judah Aryeh Leib ben David of Kalisz (d. 1709) was a rabbi and author, also called Leib Kalish. He was a grandson of R. Joel Sirkes and R. Abraham R. Ḥayyim Schor, the author of Torat Hayyim (Lublin, 1624). He served as rabbi and rosh yeshivah in the communities of Kremsier (Moravia) and Lobsens (Posen) for 22 years, and Kalisz. In 1708 he accepted an invitation to become the rabbi of the Ashkenazi community of Amsterdam, but he died a year and a half later. He was succeeded in the rabbinate of Amsterdam by R. Ẓevi Hirsch b. Jacob Ashkenazi (the Ḥakham Ẓevi). Many of Judah Aryeh Leib's aggadic novellae are mentioned in the introduction to Shama Shelomo (Amsterdam, 1710) by R. Solomon Algazi . His responsa have remained in manuscript.
