R. Yosef Ishkapa (1569-1662), was a pupil of R. Aaron Sasson of Salonica. After serving in the Salonica Yeshiva, he was appointed as Rav in the distinguished community of Izmir, where a large number of the Jews of Salonica had relocated. He was a fierce opponent of Shabtai Tzvi and was actively involved in forcing him to leave Izmir. Among his students were R. Dovid Konforti (Koreh Ha’Doros).

Known as a great Talmid Chochom and Posek, he served as Rav of Cleves. As Rav of Cleves he was the presiding Rav on the famous “Cleves Get” which was one of the most contentious divorces in Jewish history. He authored the sefer Ohr Yisroel (Cleves 1770) defending his position. Grandfather of R. Yisroel Lipchitz author of the Mishnayos Tiferes Yisroel.
