Yosef HaRo’eh - Account of his life


Yosef Ben-Avraham HaKohen (Yosef HaRo’eh / Yusuf al-Basir) is one of the most important Karaite philosophers of the older period. Second perhaps only the Ya‘aqov al-Qirqisani in his acheivements. Of his numerous philosophical and legal works, only a portion have been preserved to this day. He, like many of his predecessors wrote a Sefer Miswot (Book of Precepts). He also wrote a work entitled the Kitab al-Istibsar which is a treatise on the festivals.
