Biography:
Ḥayyim ben Hananeel ha-Kohen was a French tosafist of the second half of the twelfth century. He was a pupil of R. Jacob b. Meïr (Rabbeinu Tam), with whom he discussed legal questions. Hayyim was the maternal grandfather of Moses of Coucy, author of the “Semag” (“Sefer Mizwot Gadol”), and of Naḥman ha-Kohen, author of “Naḥmoni,” quoted in the responsa of Joseph Colon (No. 149). He is quoted in the Tosafot to Ber. 35a, Pes. 118a, Kid. 25b, and in other places. He is also mentioned in Haggahot Mordekai, at the end of tractate Ketubot. Although a Kohen, he expressed his willingness, to participate in the funeral of R. Tam, because “great men do not defile” (Ket. 103b).
