Joab Ben Jehiel

Resource Toolbox

Liturgical poet lived at Rome in the fourteenth century. He belonged to the Beth-El family, and was the author of five piyyuṭ im (inserted in the Roman Maḥ zor) for Passover, having for their subject the Canticles, and piyyuṭ im for Shabu' ot and the New-Year (before "Nishmat"), and for the Day of Atonement (before "Ḳ addish"). In the Roman Maḥ zor, also, a prayer entitled "Ashmurot ha-Boḳ er" for Thursdays on which the "Taḥ anun" is not recited, is signed "Joab" and a seliḥ ah bearing the same signature is found in the seliḥ ot collection at Tripoli. Joab is believed to be identical with the young poet whom Immanuel satirized ("Maḥ berot," 8:66).
