GERONDI, SOLOMON BEN ISAAC (13th century), Spanish liturgical poet. Gerondi was a student of *Naḥmanides (see Tashbeẓ, no. 456). According to L. Zunz he composed five poems which include his variation of a favorite theme among medieval poets, the "Thirteen Attributes of God"; "Shav min ha-Pesilim," a hymn on the patriarch Abraham; and an elegy for the Ninth of *Av (Shekhurat ve-Lo mi-Yayin). The latter became very popular among Sephardi and Ashkenazi Jews.
