Tomb of Simeon ben Menasya, Galilee
Simeon ben Menasya (Hebrew: שמעון בן מנסיא) was a Jewish tannaic sage of the forth and fifth generation of the Jewish Tannaic era. He used to divide his day into three parts, one-third devoted to study of Torah, one-third devoted for prayer, and the remaining third devoted to work. He established along with Jose b. Meshullam a group called Kehala Kaddisha (Hebrew: עדה קדושה) that would engage in the same activity-practice for the day.
