JOSEPH BEN MOSES OF KREMENETS (second half of the 16th century), Polish talmudist. Joseph's teachers in Cracow included moses isserles , israel ben shalom shakhna , and R. Mardush in Ostrog. The influence of his teachers is seen in his Be'urei ha-Semag (Venice, 1605), a commentary on the section on negative precepts in the Sefer Mitzvot Gadol of moses of Coucy. He also wrote Be'urei Rashi, a super commentary to Rashi's commentary on the Pentateuch (Prague, 1615), as well as Be'urei Sha'arei Dura (ibid., 1609), on the work of that name by isaac ben meir dueren (Cracow, 1534). A halakhic decision of Joseph appears in the Mashbit Milḥamot about the Mikvah of Rovigo (Venice, 1606, 88a–89b). -BIBLIOGRAPHY: Zunz, Gesch, 286, no. 121; 290, no. 158. (Samuel Abba Horodezky)
