Rabbinical Eras

Hamnuna (Hebrew: המנונא) is the name of several rabbis in the Talmud.

  • Hamnuna Zuta ("the younger"), late fourth century of the common era. A confession prayer he was fond of reciting on Yom Kippur eventually became part of the liturgy of the Yom Kippur prayer service.
  • According to the Encyclopaedia Judaica, "Other amoraim of the same name, some with and some without appellations, who lived in the third and fourth centuries and whom it is difficult to identify, are referred to in the Talmudic sources."
