Simeon ben shetach, rabbi

Resource Toolbox

(1century BCE) During John Hyrcanus' persecution of the Pharisees, he was hidden by his sister Salome Alexandra. Later, during Alexander Jannaeus's reign, he became the head of the Sanhedrin, and succeeded in ousting the Sadducees from the Sanhedrin. Together with his colleague, the high priest Joshua ben Gamla, he instituted a public educational system so that all children could learn Torah.
