ISAAC BEN JUDAH BEN NATHANAEL OF BEAUCAIRE (surnamed Ha-Sheniri):
Liturgic poet of the early part of the thirteenth century. Zunz credits him with thirty-eight synagogal hymns, most of them to be found in the rituals of Carpentras, Avignon, and Tripoli. They are dated between 1205 and 1220. The author asserts that he was officiating as minister, and that he lived in or . Cassel believes that designates Montauban, while Gross thinks it refers to Mont Ventoux, at the foot of which Malauçene () is situated. Al-Ḥarizi ("Taḥkemoni," ch. xlvi.) speaks in praise of this poet, "whose songs make the stars turn pale."
