Joseph, eldest son of Yehiel of Paris[a] named for Yehiel's father. A piyyut (liturgical poem) by Yosef is known; specifically, a bikkur or tosefet[2] (a supplement to the maaravit) for Shvi'i shel Pesach (the seventh day of Passover) in the French rite.[1][3] Add? [1] [2]

Yosef is best known for his journey to the Holy Land, which is well attested.[1]

Yehiel's journey began with his imprisonment. Reason for imprisonment.. Upon his release from prison, he made a neder ...[4]

Yosef and Dieu-le-sault/Délicieux, who may be identical.

Delicieux: Asaf (interpreting תוצאות ארץ ישראל only)[8] Kook's reading דילשוש in Piske Landon, contradicted by Zaks[9]

Louis Isaac Rabinowitz,[10] notes that the דיל-‎ prefix is consistently interpreted as "Dieu-le", making Dieu-le-saut the more plausible reading, or, as Rabinowitz suggests himself, דלקרייש‎ Dieu-le-cresse, which he believes to be equivalent to Joseph, unlike though Cecil Roth who identifies Dieu-le-cresse as equivalent to Gedaliah or Solomon),[11] though he believes that the absolute equivalence of Medieval French and English Jews' Hebrew and Judeo-French, assumed by Roth and Herbert Loewe, is not supported by evidence.[12]


Colchester deed etc.[16]

Eliezer, proposed by Gross who suggested identity with Dieu-le-saut [6] (who noted Steinschneider's doubts[17]) but asserted by Emanuel to be the product of a cataloging error[18] by Giuseppe Simone Assemani.[19]


  1. ^ Yosef is mentioned as Yehiel's bekhor (ritual firstborn) in the context of the Fast of the Firstborn in several sources. Yehiel's view—cited, but not accepted by poskim[citation needed]—was that the firstborn must not fast on the Eve of Passover, but only abstain from certain[which?] foods.[1]
  2. ^ Havatselet suggests an identification with Avraham ben Yehiel of Haifa, one of several signatories from Acco adding their consent to a responsum[13] of Avraham son of Maimonides in 1234,[14] but this possibility is excluded by Kohen, who shows that this is chronologically impossible.[15]
