Simeon ben Menasya (Hebrew: שמעון בן מנסיא) was a Jewish tannaic sage of the fourth and fifth generations 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.[1]
