ISAAC BEN BEZALEL OF VLADIMIR (d. 1576), Polish rabbi. To Isaac, as to his contemporaries Shalom Shachna and Kalman of Worms, belongs the credit for the expansion of talmudic studies in Poland. He was considered a front-ranking authority in the halakhic field (cf. resp. solomon luria , nos. 1, 15, 35ff.; resp. She'erit Yosef (Joseph Kohen), 17; resp. moses isserles , 91). An opinion of Isaac on an agunah matter is included in the "new" responsa of joel sirkes (no. 4). He also wrote annotations to the Talmud, to asher b. jehiel , and mordecai b. hillel . Numerous decisions of Isaac are quoted by his grandson, david b. samuel ha-levi (Turei Zahav, OḤ no. 153; YD no. 113; EH no. 129; ḤM no. 3). -BIBLIOGRAPHY: Ḥ.N.
