Aaron ben Moses Alfandari (c. 1700–1774) (Hebrew: אהרן אלפנדארק‎) was a Talmudic writer born in Smyrna. He emigrated to Palestine in his old age, where he met Azulai.


He was the author of two works:

  • Yad Aharon (Aaron's Hand), a collection of notes on Ṭur Oraḥ Ḥayyim (the first part of which was published in Smyrna in 1735, and the second in Salonica in 1791) and on Ṭur Eben ha-'Ezer (Smyrna, 1756–66)
  • Mirkebet ha-Mishneh (The Second Chariot), a treatise on the first part of Maimonides' Yad ha-ḤazaḲah.

He died in Hebron in 1774. His grandson, Isaac Ardit, wrote a eulogy on him in his YeḲar ha-'Erek, Salonica, 1836.
