2) Juda Simon Ashkenazi, died 1745 Konigsbergen, (Eisenstein 1924, p. 31)., occupation: rabbi, member of rabbinical court of Tykocin, Poland, published halachical work 'Be'er Heiteiv' on the jewish codex'Shulchan Aruch'

The years of birth of Yehuda's children indicate, that his wife wasborn after 1689 (=1739-50) and before 1720 (=1735-15). Thus, Yehudawas probably born after 1689. Yehuda was judge (dayan) in therabbinical court of Tykocin, Poland, where his tw o known sons wereborn in the 1730s. Apparently, he visited Amsterdam, where he heardthe Chief Rabbi of Amsterdam, Aryeh Leib, speak (Goldrat 1972, p. 39).Only three volumes of his Ba'er Heitev, a commentary on Joseph Caro'sShulkhan Arukh, were pub lished in Amsterdam: Yoreh Deah in 1736, EvenHa'ezer in 1739 and Orach Chayim in 1742. It may seem odd, that RabbiYehuda Ashkenazi decided to call his commentary Ba'er Heitev, becauseRabbi Isaiah ben Abraham had already called his commentar y by the samename. However, Rabbi Isaiah only wrote one volume, on Orach Chayim.Thus, Rabbi Yehuda intended to continue Rabbi Isaiah's work.Apparently, Rabbi Yehuda's commentary was such a success, that he wasasked to write his own commentar y on Orach Chayim. In his owncommentary, he refers to the previous commentary as to "the Ba'erHeitev before me". Probably, his death in 1745 prevented him fromcompleting the fourth volume. The fourth volume, on Khoshen Mishpat,was written by hi s brother-in-law rabbi Mozes Frankfort (Goldrat 1972,p. 31). Later editions of the Shulkhan Arukh generally containAshkenazi's commentaries to Orach Chayim and Even Ha'ezer only. to:
