ISAAC BAR RAV JUDAH

ISAAC BAR RAV JUDAH (end of the third and beginning of the fourth century), Babylonian amora. Isaac was the son of judah b. ezekiel , head of the academy of Pumbedita. He studied under his father (Shab. 35b; Pes. 104b; et al.) and was already a distinguished scholar during his father's lifetime, being appointed by him to preach in the bet ha-midrash (Ta'an. 13b). He also studied under huna (Nid. 17b), Rabbah b. Naḥamani , who succeeded his father as head of the yeshivah of Pumbedita (Shevu. 36b), Rami bar Ḥama, and sheshet (Zev. 96b). Both halakhic and aggadic statements by him are given in the Talmud (Shab. 21a; Er. 84a; et al.). One of his sayings was: "A man should always pray not to fall sick; for if he falls sick, he is told, 'Show thy merits and be quit'" (Shab. 32a). Isaac refrained from marriage in his youth because he sought a woman of good family and unsullied descent, for which he was rebuked by Ulla (Kid. 71b). His granddaughter, a daughter of his son Isi, was the beautiful Ḥomah, wife of Abbaye (Yev. 64b). -BIBLIOGRAPHY: Hyman, Toledot, 792f. (Zvi Kaplan)
