HONEIN, the ancient port of the kingdom of Tlemcen. After 1391 a large influx of Spanish refugees, among whom were members of the sasportas family, immigrated to Honein. Ephraim Alnaqua was the dayyan of the community for a long time, while moses gabbai was co-dayyan. The community was largely made up of fishermen, merchants, and shipowners, and included merchants who carried on a considerable volume of trade with Europe. The town was abandoned by the Jews in 1509 because of the Spanish invasion. -BIBLIOGRAPHY: A.M. Hershman, Rabbi Isaac ben Sheshet Perfet and his Times (1943), index. (David Corcos)
