BARDACH, ISRAEL (Isaac ben Ḥayyim Moses; c. late 18th century), Hebrew grammarian. Bardach, who lived in Lithuania, is known as the author of Ta'amei Torah (Vilna, 1822), a book on the accents (cantillations) of the Torah which was published by his brother Meir Bardach. The second part of this work contains a treatise on Hebrew grammar. In the introduction to Ta'amei Torah, Bardach mentions that he had also written commentaries on the Idra Rabba (of the *Zohar), on the Babylonian and Jerusalem Talmuds, and on the Shulḥan Arukh. However, the existence of all of these is unknown.
