About the Author

Dr. Hillel Yaacob Farhi was born in 1868 in Damascus and died in 1940 in Cairo. He first attended a local yeshiva where he studied Hebrew, the Torah and the Talmud. He went on to finish his education in non-sectarian schools where he mastered Arabic, Turkish, French, English & Italian. At the age of 21, he began Medical School at the American University in Beirut and graduated in 1901 from the London Hospital Medical School. In Egypt, Dr. Farhi first worked in Helouan, Assouan and then in Cairo. He was a general practitioner to generations of families and for 27 years Chief Doctor at the Egyptian Rail System Administration.

Dr. Farhi would spent his evenings deepening his knowledge of languages and philosophy, studying the Bible commentaries, translating the poems of Omar Khayyam and writing articles published in Egyptian newspapers. In 1935, he co-founded the Jewish Youth Association in Cairo and the Jewish Historical Studies Association of Egypt.

The masterpieces of Dr. Farhi's literary work are his translations from Hebrew to Arabic of the prayers following the Egyptian Sephardic rites.
