About Rab Dimi 'Abba Dimi' ben Nechemiah II, 9th Exilarch & Gaon of Ramla, hasofer

He was the son of Nechemiah ben Magis. Abdimi is the first Exilarch to return a purely Jewish ancestry to the Exilarchate when he takes a Jewish Wife of unquestionable yichus. Abdimi has five (5) sons

1) Haninai ben Abdimi, Yitzchak ben Abdimi, Shmuel ben Abdimi, Tahlifa ben Abdimi, and Pinchas ben Abdimi).

Abdimi's "bother", Natronai Ibn Habibai (a/k/a “Natronai Ibn Haninai” and “Bar Mar Yanqa” and “Machir”) leaves Palestine for Kairouan, then Fez, then Cordoba. Natronai was sent by Haroun Al-Rashid, Calif of Baghdad to Charlemagne, King of the West, at Charlemagne's his request, who wanted to establish in Europe a middle class based on a Jewish nucleus. The motive for Natronai's departure is easy to explain – he was a quick-tempered and unindulgent leader...he was not likely to gain support in the academies and his father suggested he find his success to the west. When Natronai visited Lucena, Spain, he wrote "that Alisana (Arabic for Lucena) was a Jewish place with no gentiles at all". --------------------
