Description
   R. Joseph b. Isaac Ibn Ezra (c. 1560–1620), was born in Constantinople and at the age of seventeen he went to Salonika, where he studied under R. Samuel di Medina and R. Aaron b. Solomon b. Hasson in Salonika. He was active as a teacher in the yeshivah of Don David b. Yahya where he attracted numerous pupils, including R. Meir b. Shem Tov Melamed and R. Shabbetai Jonah. Later he served as rabbi of Larissa and of Sofia. He was among the most respected Turkish rabbis and halakhic authorities of his time. He was the author of Rosh Yosef, novellae on the Tur, Hoshen Mishpat, of which the part (to ch. 163) dealing with community taxation and administration was published with the title Massa Melekh (Salonika, 1601). He also wrote novellae to the Tur Even ha-Ezer, giving them the same title Rosh Yosef. Other works include Azmot Yosef (Salonika, 1601, et al.), a commentary on tractate Kiddushin for practical halakhah; a commentary on Bava Mezia; and responsa, some of which were published in the Mishpat Zedek (Salonika, 1799; Pt. 2 no. 31) of R. Meir Melamed, in the Shai la-Mora (Salonika, 1671; no. 2) of R. Shabbetai Jonah, in the responsa of R. Solomon ha-Kohen, and in R. Samuel Hayyun's Benei Shemu'el. R. Ibn Ezra died in Sofia.
          
Paragraph 2    יסדו ... ר' יוסף ן' עזרא נר"ו ... בדיני המסים והארנוניות ... כיצד יהיה סדר הפרעון וכמה יהיה בעיר ויהי' כאנשי העיר ... וכל דיני עריכת הק"ק הן לפי הדין והן לפי המנהג ... ולהיות שדיני המסים תלוים במנהג יבאר ... דיני המנהגי' ... הוסיף המחבר ... קונטריס בסוף החבור לקצר כל הדינים אשר באו באורך בחבור הזה ...
