Caregal (Karregal), Ḥayyim Moses ben Abraham


CAREGAL (Karregal), ḤAYYIM MOSES BEN ABRAHAM (18th century), Sephardi ḥazzan of Jerusalem. Because of the heavy taxes imposed by the Jerusalem authorities, Caregal undertook a mission to Europe in the years 1712–14, both for the community and on his own behalf. This enabled him to arrange for the publication in Amsterdam of Sefer Yemin Moshe which appeared in 1718. This is a reprint with his own additions of the Yemin Moshe (Mantua, 1624) of Moses b. Joseph Ventura, a work on sheḥitah, very popular among the shoḥatim of Jerusalem. In the preface, he gives his biography as well as the novellae of his father, who, he said, was the only person to escape the Inquisition in *Reggio. The work also includes the Shoḥatei ha-Yeladim of Israel b. Moses *Najara, and the Zikkaron li-Venei Yisrael of Abraham b. Baruch Mizraḥi, a shoḥet of Jerusalem.

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
