Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Abraham Israel Pereyra (Pereira) was a very wealthy and important Portuguese merchant of the Jewish nation, who lived in Amsterdam from circa 1644 to his death in 1699. Cecil Roth, following Kayserling, says Abraham Pereyra was born in Madrid "of Marrano parentage." The very famous founder of the Kabbalah modern academic field of historical studies in Jerusalem, Gershom Scholem, following Roth, articulates his origins and importance in the following manner: "...a descendant of a family of marranos in Madrid and one of the wealthiest industrialists and merchant princes in Holland. Pereyra was much given to works of piety and devotion, and in 1659 he founded the yeshibah Hesed le-Abraham in Hebron. " Meyer Kayserling, who is actually the main secondary source for the rather scant extant biographical information on the subject, writes that his name before leaving Spain was Thomas Rodriguez Pereyra and that he was "persecuted by the Inquisition."
