Graziadio Nepi (1759-1836) studied at Ferrara for twelve years under Rabbi Jacob Moses Ayash and subsequently was himself the teacher of many disciples in his native city. On account of his great Talmudic learning he was sent as deputy to the Assembly of Jewish Notables convened by Napoleon I at Paris in 1806. Upon his return he was called to the congregation at Cento, where he held the position of rabbi until his death, his pupil Isaac Reggio becoming his successor at Ferrara. Nepi, who lived an ascetic life, was one of the most respected religious authorities of his time in Italy. (JE Vol. 9, p. 224).
