Description
   Haggadah with commentary by R. Jedidiah Tia b. Jacob Nathanael Weil, German rabbi; born at Prague Oct. 2, 1721; died at Karlsruhe Oct. 10, 1805. He received his early instruction from his father. In 1744 he married Gitel, daughter of R. Jacob Eger, a well-to-do resident of Prague; but the expulsion of the Jews from Prague ordered by Maria Theresa drove him to Metz in 1745, where he remained until 1748, continuing his studies under R. Jonathan Eybeschutz. Returning to Prague, he lived in great difficulties until, in 1754, he became rabbi of Wottitz, in Bohemia. In 1758 he again settled in Prague, which he left in 1770 to succeed his father in the rabbinate of Karlsruhe. Of his works only a commentary on the Passover Haggadah has been printed (Karlsruhe, 1791, published anonymously). Responsa of his are found in the collection of R. Ezekiel Landau and in his father's "Netiv Hayyim" (Fuerth, 1779). Numerous novellae and homilies are preserved in manuscript. His will shows him to have been a man of genuine piety and a believer in the Kabbalah.
