ZEBIDAH, family of paytanim that appears in several places in the genizah (Judah, Yose his brother, Abraham b. Judah, Isaac and Jacob b. Isaac). The head of the family and its most important paytan seems to have been Judah, author of a kerovah for the Intermediate Sabbath of Passover, published by I. Davidson (JQR, 21 (1930/31), 255, 266–75). A second signature to this kerovah, "Yehudah mi-Berutah me-Ḥaleb Asah," would indicate that the family came originally from Syria, some living in Beirut and some in Aleppo. The founder of the family must have lived, at the latest, in the 11th century. -BIBLIOGRAPHY: H. Schirmann, Shirim Ḥadashim min ha-Genizah (1965), 87–96. ADD. BIBLIOGRAPHY: E.
