   The copy of R. Hayyim Palache with his signature on title. R. Hayyim Palache (also called by the acronym Habif; 1788–1869), rabbi and hakham bashi. Born in Izmir (Smyrna), Palache, a member of the distinguished Palache family, was the grandson on his mother's side of R. Joseph Raphael Hazzan (author of Hikrei Lev) and was a disciple of R. Joseph Gatenio (author of Beit Yizhak). He became av bet din in 1837. In 1847 he was appointed as rav sheni ("second rabbi") with the title dayyan, authorized to render judgement alone, and later was awarded the rabbinical title marbiz Torah. His position as marbiz Torah is attested by R. Hayyim Palache himself: "I, the marbiz Torah of this place, the town of Izmir... and its environs" (Male Hayyim: Ha-Takkanot, 42, 74), i.e., the neighboring towns of Izmir as well, such as Tiriya, Manissa, Bergama. In 1855 he was appointed as rav kolel ("chief of the rabbis"; Hayyim ba-Yad (1873), nos. 63, 74, 75). In 1865, at the age of 77, he was appointed hakham bashi of Izmir. Palache was a prolific writer. Many of his manuscripts were burned and a great number were not published, but 26 works were printed.
