Ibn Zabarra, Judah

Resource Toolbox

Poet and theologian flourished in the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries probably a native of Spain, where the surname of "Zabara" was borne by several scholars. He was the pupil of Aaron ha-Levi (d. 1293-94) and of Meï r Abulafia, and seems to have resided a certain time at Montpellier. Judah was the author of "Miktab ha-Teḥ iyyah," a treatise on resurrection (Constantinople, 1569). Of his poetical productions only one poem has survived, which celebrates the works of Menahem Meï ri of Perpignan (Stern, preface to the introduction of Meï ri, ed. Vienna, p. xiv.).
