Ibn Abitur, Joseph ben Isaac

(fl. 10th-11th cent)
   Spanish scholar. After Moses ben Enoch's death in Cordoba, his place as rabbi and head of the yeshivah there was taken by his son Enoch. Ibn Arbitur attempted to displace Enoch, causing a split in the community. He was forced into exile and travelled to North Africa, Pumbedita and Damascus. He wrote an Arabic commentary on the Talmud, a Hebrew commentary on the Psalms, and liturgical poetry.
