Özet

Due to painful experiences throughout history, Jews gave high importance to educational activity to keep their existance as a community. Yeshivas, where higher religious education was taught, were established in pre-Islamic period. During the Abbasid Period, Yeshivas of Sura and Pumbeditha in Iraq and Yeshiva of Palestine continued their activities without any obstacles.
