The present index is based on his article entitled: "Rabbinical Tombstone Inscriptions in the old cemetery of Tunis" that appeared in: Revue Tunisienne, 1931, 1: 105-119, 405-411 & 1932, 2: 99-111 .
  This annotated index includes 87 tombstone inscriptions of Tunis Rabbis who died during the period 1715-1898.
  The annotations include biographical details and titles of books written by these rabbis.
  This compilation shows the composition of Tunis Jewish community while a part of these rabbis were Tunisian local Jews and the other part were members of Tunis Portuguese community2.
