The answer to the Mystic Monday Mystery is Yehudah ha-Levi (lived c. 1080-1141) was one of the greatest Spanish-Jewish poets. He was born in Toledo, Spain while it was still under Islamic rule. He was a prolific writer of both Arabic and Hebrew poetry. He was also a physician and a philosopher. His writings are very diverse and cover such topics as love, friendship, religious devotion, hope, wisdom, and sorrow.
