The sefer\'s printer Tobia ben Eliezer Foà came from a Jewish family from Sabbioneta, where he established a printing press specializing in Hebrew books. The Foà printers operated in Sabbioneta from 1551 to 1559, where they produced very important volumes (ca. 26 books). Due to censorship, the press was closed for Jewish printing, and in 1567 was taken over by the gentile printer Vicenzo Conti.

Rabbi Yitzchak b. Moshe Arama (1420-1494) was one of the great Sages of Expulsion-era Spain. He served as rabbi in several communities and printed his drashot in the famous book \'Akedat Yitzchak\' on the Torah.
