Rabai of Rob

Resource Toolbox

Youngest sabora of the first generation succeeded R. Simona as head of the Academy of Pumbedita died in 550. Sherira says of him, "It is said that he was a gaon." This, however, does not mean that he was the first gaon. Sherira uses the term "gaon" as equivalent to "head of a school," for he says of R. Jose also, the last of the Amoraim, that he was a gaon, though in his case it can mean only "head of a school."
