Ravina II


Ravina II

Ravina II was a Jewish Talmudist and rabbi who, in 475 AD, finished editing the Gemara portion of the "Talmud Bavli", completing the work of his teacher Rav Ashi. ("Babylonian Talmud".) He was also a nephew of Ravina I. He was a leader for 22 years. His father died when Ravina II was young, so his mother taught him Torah.
