AZARIAH


AZARIAH
AZARIAH (end of the first century C.E.), one of the first generation of tannaim after the destruction of the Second Temple. His son was the tanna eleazar b. azariah (Yev. 16a). An affluent merchant, Azariah supported his brother Simeon, also a tanna, so that he might devote himself to his study. It was because of this that Simeon was referred to as "the brother of Azariah" (Zev. 1:2; see Sot. 21a and Rashi, ibid.). -BIBLIOGRAPHY: Frankel, Mishnah, 69, 105ff.; Hyman, Toledot, 980.
