   A piyyut (liturgical poem) about R. Alkabir Yehuda Ibn Attar written by R. Shmuel ben Yehuda Elbaz (1790–1844). R. Judah b. Jacob ibn Attar (known as "Rabbi al-Kabbir" (the great teacher); 1655–1733), talmudic scholar in Morocco. Attar was born in Fez and at a young age he was appointed head of the Moroccan dayyanim, after refusing to accept any remuneration for this function. He earned his living in trade and devoted his life to the well-being of his coreligionists. In collaboration with his disciple, Jacob Abensur, he published the takkanot of the first Spanish exiles in Fez and drew up new regulations which continued to serve as the basis of Judeo-Moroccan jurisprudence. His published works include Minhat Yehudah on the Pentateuch (1940); customs and practices of Fez regarding terefot published in Mekor Hayyim (1897). Many responsa were published in Mishpat u-Zedakah le-Ya'akov (pt. 1–1894, pt. 2–1903) and others appear in works of various Moroccan rabbis. Many of Attar's writings still exist in manuscript including a commentary on Midrash Rabbah.
