ṢAʿADĪ, JUDAH BEN SOLOMON (c. 1665–1740), av bet din in Sanʿa after the return of the Jews from exile in Mawzaʿ . During Ṣaʿadī's lifetime the dispute over the version of prayers to be adopted in yemen broke out. He and R. Yaḥyā Ṣāliḥ (Maharis) fought for the original Yemenite version (baladī), and against the Sephardi version (shāmī), which had spread with the introduction of printed siddurim. Some opinions have attributed to him the work Dofi ha-Zeman ("Fault of the Times"), a history of Yemenite Jewry during the years 1717–26 (see Saadi, Said b. Solomon ). -BIBLIOGRAPHY: Tikhlal, Eẓ Ḥayyim, 1 (1894), introd. (Yehuda Ratzaby)
