A Short Tribute

In 1787, some three years prior to the riots that took place in Tetuan, Hacham Abraham Coriat left for the city of Mogador (today Essaouira) to serve as Moreh Tzedek (halakhic adjudicator). He later continued his travels, residing in Gibraltar and Livorno for a time.
Hacham Abraham Coriat passed away on 11 Heshvan, 5566 (1806). He authored Brit Avot, a book of sermons, Responsa and halakhic amendments.
