R.  Jacob ben Judah Weil (d. before 1456) was a German rabbi and halakhic authority in the first half of 15 century. He was the author of Hilkhot Sheḥitah u-Vedikah ("laws of slaughtering and examination") which was accepted as halakhic practice by the Ashkenazim and has been republished more than 70 times. Zevah Shemu’el, on that work, has proven to be a popular commentary and has also been published several times.
