in chovos halevavos gate 9 ch.5 Do so in your heart and mind if you are unable to free your body to matters of the next world due to being so fully engaged with providing for your livelihood and maintenance, as our Rabbis mentioned on many (great men), who would toil in matters of this world, while being separate from it (in heart and mind), such ...

The Maharsha there s.v. על רגל אחת explains that Shamai was, in the two accounts in which he was holding the construction cubit (as he was not reported to be holding it in the first account), showing the questioner some important element of his response. The fellow who asked to be taught the entire Torah on one foot was being shown that just as a building ...

Otzar Chaim - Rabbi Chaim Yehuda Ehrenreich ponders this question and offers a few possible solutions. 1 - Seder Hadoros - page 262 top left writes that he married another wife who was the daughter of Zariz. 2 - Since it says Ben Chamav - perhaps there are three generations here, Rabbi Yehoshua, his father Zariz, Zariz's father - whom was the father-in-law ...

According to Tosafos Yeshanim at the end of Maseches Yoma, stam Rabi Yosei is Rabi Yosei ben Chalafta. So I'll point out these ideas from here http://www.jewishencyclopedia.com/articles/8789-jose-ben-halafta Which point to him being non-affiliated with either school. It is very likely that he studied much under his father, Ḥalafta, whose authority he ...

From here it would appear that there are 277 Tannaim and 1,292 Amoraim mentioned in the Talmudic-Midrashic literature. (Note: A number of Amoraim, e.g. Rav [Abba Arika] is also considered a Tanna according to some gemarot.)

The destruction of the temple was in ~70 CE and the Bar Kochba revolt was ~130 CE. Even if Yehudah Ben Beseira straddled the destruction, it would seem to be a stretch to call him a contemporary of Akiva. The Yerushalmi Talmud on the story in Pesachim 3b lists him only as Ben Beseira. Since presumably he was living in Israel at the time, this is more ...

The last Mishnah in Uktzin - perek 3 mishnah 12 - starts with a quotation from R' Yehoshua Ben Levi. Tosafos Yom Tov there says that according to the Rambam he is a Tanna. However, at the end of the Masechto, Tosafos Yom Tov disagrees and gives a reason why Rabeinu Hakodosh, the copiler of the Mishnah, put in this saying of R' Yehoshua Ben Levi, even though ...

Wikipedia based on Gemara Chagiga 22b says that Rabbi Yehoshua ben Chananya followed Bais Hillel. רבי יהושע סבר היה מבית הלל ("בושני מדבריכם בית שמאי" - חגיגה כב:). לכן הוא מיקל יותר, מתחשב במציאות, מעדיף את הכמות, את הבפועל , ומקרב גרים.

We see from Bava Metsiah 84b that Rabbi Yehoshua ben Karcha learned in the beit midrash of Rabban Shimon ben Gamliel in Usha (of the fourth generation). Since the latter is a direct descendent of Hillel, we can reasonably assume that his beit midrash taught according to Beit Hillel. This would make Rabbi Yehoshua ben Karcha a member of Beit Hillel. More ...
