A member of the Portuguese Bet Halevi family, Solomon ben Isaac was born in Salonika. After a short period serving as rabbi of Uskub, Yugoslavia, he returned to his hometown, where his devotion to communal service earned him the appellation "HaZaken" (The Elder). See EJ II, col. 85-6. One of the earliest complete commentaries to the Pirkei Avoth.
