Jedaiah ben Abraham Bedersi (c. 1270 – c. 1340) (Hebrew) was a Jewish poet, physician, and philosopher; born at Béziers (hence his surname Bedersi). His Provençal name was En Bonet, which probably corresponds to the Hebrew name Tobiah (compare Oheb Nashim in the Zunz Jubelschrift, Hebrew part, p. 1); and, according to the practice of the Provençal Jews, he occasionally joined to his name that of his father, Abraham Profiat (Bedersi).
