Hayyim ben Isaac Raphael Alfandari (Hebrew: חיים בן יצחק אלפנדארק) was rabbi in Constantinople during the latter half of the 17th and in the beginning of the 18th-century. In his old age he went to Palestine, where he died. He was the author of Esh Dat (A Fiery Law), a collection of homilies printed together with his uncle's Muẓẓal me-Esh in Constantinople, 1718. Several short treatises by him are published in the works of others. Azulai speaks very highly of him as a scholar and as a preacher.
