Caro, R. Joseph: (Toledo, 1488 – Safed, 1575) Rabbi Joseph Caro is most famous as the author of the Shulchan Aruch, the Code of Jewish Law. Born in Toledo, Spain, during the Inquisition years, he fled from that country at the age of 4, eventually settling in Constantinople. In 1536, he made his way to Safed, in the Holy Land. His major works, the Beit Yosef and the Shulchan Aruch, are considered by Sephardic Jewry to be the ultimate authorities in halacha. He was also an accomplished and well known kabbalist.
