   During the latter half of the 18th century R. Mordecai Galante was rabbi and head of a yeshivah in Damascus. He corresponded about matters of Jewish law with the foremost Sephardi rabbinical authorities of his time. A number of his halakhic dissertations are contained in the responsa Berekhot Mayim by R. Mordecai Meyuhas (Salonika, 1789), R. Solomon Laniado (Constantinople, 1775) and Bigdei Yesha of R. Isaiah Attia (1853). A collection of his sermons was published in Leghorn under the heading of Divrei Mordekhai. To these were appended responsa by him entitled Gedullat Mordekhai as well as homilies by his son Moses under the title of Kolo shel Moshe.
