    The man who became Rabbi Akiva, a famous Jewish sage who lived during the first and second centuries C.E., started life as an illiterate shepherd. But his wife, Rachel, who married him despite her ric.   Rabbi Akiva’s life from beginning to end is marked by these periods of great tragedy, war, and devastation – where it was not free for Jews to study and pray, let alone to celebrate the holidays.

      The Orchard is the eighth book of Israeli novelist Yochi Brandes. She tells the life of Rabbi Akiva in an intriguing fiction format keeping this reader turning the pages. But this is not a history. Rabbi Dr. Akiva Tatz is an international lecturer and author of note. He has written five highly acclaimed works on the deeper aspects of Judaism, some of which have been translated into Russian, French, Spanish and Portuguese.

    This book explores the philosophy of love through the thought and life of Rabbi Akiva ben Joseph. Readers of the Talmud are introduced to Rabbi Akiva through the iconic story of his love for his wife Rachel. From this starting point, Naftali Rothenberg conducts a thorough examination of theBrand: Palgrave Macmillan. Rabbi Akiva's second wife sometimes appears in the Talmud as the "daughter of Kalba Savua" and sometimes as the "daughter of the son of Kalba Savua" (apparently, the latter is the correct version), but she is never referred to by her first name. Suffice it to mention one book that has nearly been forgotten: "Toldot Yisrael" ("Jewish History.

Very interesting and thought provoking, albeit a bit heavy to read. It is refreshing to see a Christian critical view if rabbi Akiva.

Most Christians don't even know who rabbi Akiva is. I see this as one side of the argument, and I will be reading litterature praising Akiva to get a balanced view/5.

The core of this argument between Rabbi Akiva and Rav Yochanan ben Torta may be based on a similarity between these two great individuals. Both began their careers as outsiders, and joined the sages at a later point in life.

Rabbi Akiva was an adult before he began to study Torah, a fact preserved in numerous sources. In honor of Menachem Mendel hakohen, Yacha Golda, Gittel, Levi Yitzchok hakohen and Devora Leah.

The Talmud could have easily only attributed the tragedy of Rabbi Akiva's students to a plague, whether natural or at the hands of the Romans. Instead our sages chose to first ascribe it to a loss of kavod as a powerful reminder of what can happen to us when we forget how to.

Synopsis A compelling and lucid account of the life and teachings of a founder of rabbinic Judaism and one of the most beloved heroes of Jewish history Born in the Land of Israel around the year 50 C. E., Rabbi Akiva was the greatest rabbi of his time and one of the most important influences on Judaism as we know it : Barry W.

Holtz. Rabbi Akiva (c C.E.) is a storied scholar and hero in Jewish tradition. His name appears more than 1, times in the Babylonian Talmud alone. Following the Roman destruction of the Temple in 70 C.E.

– a tragedy that threatened to end Judaism – he and other luminaries started down a path that led to a new Judaism, replacing Temple. Rabbi Akiva was a shepherd — as was Jacob, Moses and David — in the employ of Kalba Savua.

Rachel loved Rabbi Akiva and sent him away to study at the yeshiva of the great Rabbi Eliezer, while her father, angry over the “mismatch,” disowned them. Moreover, Rabbi Akiva also survived a pandemic that wiped out his disciples — of them, representing the entirety of Jewish religious scholarship in that generation.

Rabbi Akiva had to start over, with just five students — all of whom risked their lives to receive rabbinic ordination in a time of cruel Roman persecution.
