Chapter Summary

On September 21, 1750 (20 Elul 5510) in The Hague, before the notary public Johannes Sythoff, David de Joseph de Pinto, by a Portuguese codicil to his last will, founded a yeshiva in Jerusalem that would bear the name Jesiba Magen David. The Jerusalem community, according to Jacob Barnai's view, was an emanation of the diaspora, on which it depended entirely. De Pinto inherited two traditions, one from Abraham and Isaac de Pinto concerning the Jesiba de los Pintos, and one from Abraham and Jacob Pereyra. The Amsterdam par nassim sent one letter to the deputies of the four congregations in the Holy Land of the Portuguese Nation in Istanbul on December 29, 1765. The invoices of money were effective by means of the poliça, that is to say the bill of exchange coming annually from Amsterdam to Istanbul for sending to the four cities: Jerusalem, Hebron, Safed, and Tiberias.
