Item Description:

Life is seldom quiet for a Torah leader, and this was certainly true for Rabbi Saadia Gaon, author of the first book of Jewish philosophy for the masses, Emunos v'Deos. He fought and won three major battles in his life, thus establishing the primacy of Babylonia over all Jewish communities worldwide, defeating the corrupt Exilarch Dovid ben Zakkai, and sending the Karaite movement on the path to its ultimate downfall.

• the stormy life of the Saadia Gaon
• known genius from the age of 25
• the terrible privations he faced for standing up for Torah
• Babylonia vs. Jerusalem - the debate over the Jewish calendar
