Manoah B. Jacob

French Talmudist; lived at Lunel in the second half of the thirteenth century. He is sometimes quoted under the abbreviation (="R. Manoah"; Halberstam MSS., No. 345). Manoah often cites decisions in the name of his father. After a brief residence at Narbonne, where he studied with Meïr b. Simon and Reuben b. Ḥayyim, Manoah returned to Lunel. Like several of his contemporaries, he was a student of the works of Maimonides, and wrote a commentary on the latter's Yad ha-Ḥazaḳah, which is quoted in "Sha'are Ẓiyyon" under the title "Sefer ha-Manoaḥ," and in "Ḳore ha-Dorot," under the title "Sefer ha-Menuḥah." It was printed at Constantinople in 1518.
