The First Yeshiva
The oldest yeshiva in history was established by Shem — the son of Noach, who survived the great deluge — together with his great-grandson Ever. It was in their yeshiva that our Patriarch Yaakov studied Torah.
Tradition has it that this place of study was in a cave located in the center of Tzefat. The Arizal is cited as stating that this cave was the final resting place of the Talmudic Sage Rabbi Dosa ben Hyrcanus.
