His Life

Born in Livorno in 1685, to Rabbi Emanuel the rabbi of the community. He studied Torah in the city at the yeshiva of Rabbi Shmuel di Fass and became famous for his genius at a young age. Afterwards, he settled in the city of Pisa and established a yeshiva there, called Neve Shalom.

He became famous for his important Kabbalistic book, Shomer Emunim, in which he argues with Rabbi Emanuel Chai Riki, who was one of the proponents of "Hatzimzum Trati Mashma." Irgas' book is considered a basic book in Kabbalah and the most prominent representative of the proponents of "Hatzimzum Hablti Zafui."  In order to differentiate between this book and the book "Shomer Emunim" written by Rabbi Aharon Rata, it is customary to call the first "the ancient (Hakadum) Shomer Emunim".

He also wrote a halakhic responsa in the name of Divrei Yosef.

He died in Livorno on the 3rd of Sivan in 1730 at the age of forty-five.
