Aaron Jaroslaw (also Jaroslav) was one of the Biurists.

He was a tutor in the house of Moses Mendelssohn; afterwards a teacher at Lemberg. His commentary on the Book of Numbers appeared in the first edition of Mendelssohn's Pentateuch ("Netibot ha-Shalom," Berlin, 1783) and has been included in all subsequent editions.

He published the third edition of Maimonides's "Millot ha-Higgayon," with Moses Mendelssohn's Hebrew commentary (Berlin, 1784).
