Jeremiah ben abba

Resource Toolbox

(4th century) Talmudic sage, born in [Babylon] but emigrated to Tiberias, Israel, where he diligently studied under Rabbis Abahu and Zeira. His hairsplitting questions irked his colleagues, once even prompting his expulsion from the study hall. Whenever the Talmud writes, "In Israel, they said..." it is a reference to Rabbi Jeremiah.
