Precentor; lived in Speyer toward the end of the eleventh century. He was the teacher of Samuel the Pious, and perhaps identical with Eleazar, son of Meshullam the Great. The latter supplied many notes to the commentator on Chronicles who wrote at Narbonne about 1130-40. He was also the teacher of Shemariah ben Mordecai of Speyer.
