   Novellae and expositions on the Rambam by R. Rafael Meyuches b. Samuel Meyuches(?1695–1771), chief rabbi (rishon le-Zion) of Jerusalem. R. Meyuhas was born in Jerusalem and studied in the yeshivah Bet Ya'akov, which he subsequently headed. In 1723 when the troubles of the Jewish community of Jerusalem were aggravated because of the harsh rule of its governor, Yussuf Pasha, R. Raphael was sent by R. Abraham Yizhaki, the rishon le-Zion, to Constantinople to plead for the governor's removal. R. Meyuhas served as av bet din in Jerusalem, his colleagues including R. Isaac Zerahiah Azulai and, much later, his son R. H. J. D. Azulai. In 1756 on the death of R. Israel Jacob Algazi, he was appointed rishon le-Zion. In one of his rulings R. Raphael endeavored to bring about a rapprochement between the Karaites and the Rabbanites, permitting the Karaites to send their children to the talmud torah. Tradition has it, however, that R. Raphael later recanted his ruling. He was the author of: Minhat Bikkurim (Salonika, 1752) on the Talmud; Peri ha-Adamah in 4 parts (ibid., 1752–57 (64?)), novellae on Maimonides' Mishneh Torah with responsa - appended to the fourth part are homilies called Penei ha-Adamah; Mizbah Adamah (ibid., 1777) on the Shulhan Arukh. R. Raphael was the brother of R. Abraham b. Samuel Meyuhas and the father of R. Moses Joseph Mordecai Meyuhas.
