The 5th volume in The Sages series, by Rabbi Binyamin Lau.
The Yeshivot of Babylonia and Israel
The Sages brings the world of the Talmud to life, revealing the stories of the men behind its pages. This fascinating multi-volume series explores the lives and times of great Jewish sages (Hazal)—their teachers and disciples, their families and professions, the values they cherished and ideologies they opposed, the historical challenges they faced and the creative wisdom with which they faced them. Highly original and profoundly engaging, The Sages draws readers closer to the world of Hazal while deepening their understanding of our own. Volume V focuses on the world of the Yeshivot of Babylonia and Israel.
