Item Description:

When the Rif of Spain wrote his abridgement of the Talmud, many of the rabbis of Provence viewed his work with deep suspicion. Yet Rabbi Yehonasan Ha Cohen defended him and also became a correspondent of the controversial Rambam, allowing for a fascinating exchange of ideas. In addition to his scholarship, Rabbi Yehonasan Ha Cohen lived a life of adventure. Amidst the bloody Crusades, he led over 300 Jews to the Holy Land where he too ultimately settled. Rabbi Yehonasan Ha Cohen and his exciting accomplishments come to life in this thoroughly engrossing lecture.
