BARUCH BEN ISAAC OF REGENSBURG (second half of 12th century), talmudic scholar. He was a member of the bet din of Regensburg, together with isaac b. jacob ha-lavan of prague , Abraham ben Moses of Regensburg, and Judah he-Ḥasid b. Samuel (Sefer Ḥasidim, ed. by J. Wistinetzki (19242), 390). Baruch was one of the teachers of abraham b. azriel , the author of Arugat ha-Bosem. There is record of a question addressed to Baruch and his two fellow judges by R. Joel ben Isaac ha-Levi (Sefer Ravyah, no. 1031). Baruch engaged in disputations with his older contemporary eliezer b. nathan of Mainz, who esteemed him highly, and with isaac b. samuel ha-zaken of Dampierre. Some scholars have incorrectly identified him with baruch b. isaac of worms , author of the Sefer ha-Terumah. -BIBLIOGRAPHY: H. Gross, in: MGWJ, 34 (1885), 558–60; idem, in: ZHB, 11 (1907), 179; J.
