Hanoch ben Moses

Hanoch ben Moses (d. 1014) was a rabbi and talmudist in early eleventh-century al-Andalus. He was the son of Moses ben Hanoch, who came to Iberia probably from southern Italy and was one of the scholars mentioned in the story of the Four Captives related by Abraham ibn Daʾud in his Book of Tradition. Benefiting from the patronage of the nasi of the Jewish community in Cordova and  court physician of ʿAbd-al-Raḥmān III (r. 912–961), Ḥasday ibn Shapruṭ, Hanoch’s father became the city’s rabbi and dayyan.
