R. Elisha (Mercado) Habillo (1719–1792), rabbi of Sarajevo. R. Habillo studied under David Pardo, author of Shoshannim le-David. He wrote Avodat ha-Tamid (Sarajevo, 1788), a commentary on the Sephardi liturgy for the whole year, together with the order of service for weekdays, with brief laws and explanations. In this work the author at times cites the explanations of Nehemiah Hayon, only to dissociate himself from them at the end. He published his teacher's book of prayers for festivals, Shifat Revivim (Leghorn, 1787), including in the original his elegy on the ill-treatment by the Turks of the Sarajevo Jews who fled from the Austrians, and added a number of his poems. R. Habillo also wrote a commentary on the Passover Haggadah and on the Grace after Meals.
