Toldos Tanaim Vamoraim - page 286 says that there is no record of his death anywhere, however he outlived Hillel based on a Gemara in Bava Basra 133b.

The Tzla'ch in Berachot 26b says the גמרא can't ask on Rebbe Yehoshua ben Levi from a ברייתא because he lived at the end of the Tannayic era and, therefore can argue on a ברייתא

According to this page on Dafi-Yomi.com, it's Rabbi Chanina ben Hama, a student of Rebbi Yehuda haNasi. רבי חנינא "סתם" הוא רבי חנינא בר חמא , היה תלמידו של רבי יהודה הנשיא‏ Other sources: Ohr Yisroel Virtual BM

The מגיד תעלומה suggests that you cannot say that רבי אבא is רב in this case, because further on רב is quoted by רב חננאל as taking a different view. The יפה תלמוד ג"ח suggests that in this case, רבינו is רבינו הקדוש for the same reason - רב being quoted further on as contradicting this din. The עטרת שאול discusses this at length, suggesting different ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

End of first exile to early second temple era. Begining The Gemara Megillah 2a says that they were involved in instituting Purim and the Gemara there (17b) says that their ranks included some prophets which means that they existed by the end of the first galus (exile). They dont seem to have existed much before that because the first mishna is avos writes ...

As far as I have understood from speaking to Rebbeim, R' Chiya was a teacher of Baraisos. He was not himself a Tanna. Baraisas that went through the academy of R' Chiya were assumed to be authoritative. However, if R' Chiya taught something which had no reference or hint to it in the Mishna, it is assumed that it is a mistake. R' Chiya is not talking on ...

I'll get this one started: it started with the building of the Second Temple -- ~2500 years ago. It ended in the times of Shimon HaTzadik, who was a contemporary of Alexander the Great. I don't know enough about why/how it disbanded. Rambam's introduction to his Yad Hachazaka: ז בית דינו של עזרא, הם הנקראין אנשי כנסת הגדולה. והם חגיי זכריה ומלאכי, ...

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 ...

Firstly, if one hears something directly from a heavenly source, one can reasonably believe that it's an exception. But more to the point, Elisha had reason to believe that he qualified anyways. The Mishna in Shanhedrin Daf 90a states that one of the categories of people who lose their portion in the world to is one who reads literature categorized as ...

See the beginning of Hazahav in Bava Metzia 44a מתני ליה רבי לרבי שמעון בריה הזהב קונה את הכסף א'ל רבי שנית לנו בילדותיך הכסף קונה את הזהב ותחזור ותשנה לנו בזקנותיך הזהב קונה את הכסף בילדותיה מאי. סבר ובזקנותיה מאי סבר בילדותיה סבר etc. It is apparent at least that Rabi Yehuda Hannasi last edited the Mishna when he was a old. We also see that he was not ...
