Abi Zimra, Abraham ben Meir

Additional Links

Flourished in Malaga, and seems to have left his home in 1492, going to Oran, and dwelling later in Tlemçen. He enjoyed quite a reputation as a poet, but very few of his writings have been preserved. His composition ("My soul, how long wilt thou err in thy way?"), an address to his soul to appease its longing for truth and eternity, written in 1493, in Oran, deserves special mention.
