The Founder of Hebrew Spanish Poetry, Dunash ben Labrat, also made your ulpan studies possible. He was the first to distinguish between transitive and intransitive verbs in Hebrew, and to catalog verbs by the 3-letter roots. His smart, talented wife produced the only Hebrew language poem we have by an Andalusian woman.
