R. Israel Jacob Hagiz (1620–1674), Jerusalem scholar. He was the son of R. Samuel Hagiz, who was rabbi of Fez, and son-in-law of R. Moses Galante. During his youth he resided in various communities in Morocco and Italy. In 1658 he emigrated to Jerusalem, where he headed a yeshivah founded and maintained by the Vega brothers of Leghorn, in which secular subjects and Spanish were also studied. Jacob himself, in addition to his Torah study, occupied himself with philosophy, astronomy, medicine, and grammar. He instituted several takkanot in Jerusalem, mainly in the field of divorce procedure. In contrast to his father-in-law, Jacob was a vehement opponent of Shabbetai Zevi from the beginning, being one of the first to regard him as a false messiah, and he was one of those who excommunicated him in 1665. In 1673, he went to Constantinople, in order to publish his Lehem ha-Panim but died before achieving this.

He was also the author of: Ez ha-Hayyim, a commentary to the Mishnah (Mishnayot, Leghorn, 1652–56); Halakhot Ketannot (Venice, 1704), responsa; Tehillat Hokhmah, a talmudic methodology, published with the Sefer Keritot of Samson of Chinon (Verona, 1647); Ein Yisrael, an adapted edition of the Ein Ya'akov of Jacob ibn Habib with the additions of Leone Modena (Verona, 1645); Petil Tekhelet (Venice, 1652) a commentary on the azharot of Solomon ibn Gabirol; Dinei Birkat ha-Shahar, Keri'at Shema u-Tefillah, laws of the morning blessings, of the reading of the shema and of the amidah (Verona, 1648); Almenara de la Luz (Leghorn, 1656), a Spanish translation of the Menorat ha-Ma'or of Isaac Aboab.

Paragraph 2    הוא חבור מכמה פשטים ופירושים ... ועם דינים וחדושים להשתעשע בהם התלמידים כמו פרפראות לחכמה ... [מאת] הצעיר יעקב אשר הוסב את שמי ישראל בכמוהר"ר שמואל חאגיז זלה"ה ...
