Event Details

Rabbi Elijahu ben Shlomo Zalman, known as the Genius (Gaon in Hebrew) from Vilna, was a unique individual in the history of Judaism. As one of the greatest Jewish scholars, he shaped the modern study of the Talmud and participated in the turbulent religious disputes of his time. His fame radiated all over Europe.
