Died:Tunis, Tunisia, 1839
Rabbi of Tunis, a man of miracles and wonders, Kabbalist. Rabbi Yehoshua was constantly on guard protecting the Jews of Tunisia from being persecuted by the Moslem people. One of his friends was the king of Tunisia, King Albay, who always enjoyed chatting with Rabbi Yehoshua, basking in his wisdom. May the merit of the tzaddik Rabbi Yehoshua Besis protect us all, Amen.
