Chapter Summary

In the last decades of the Second Temple period and on into the mishnaic and talmudic periods, Jews regarded the Golan Heights as the hinterland of Galilee. Jews had also settled to the east of Golan in Bashan (Batanaea) and Hauran. Galilean sages maintained ties with the sages in the Golan, Bashan and Hauran, as they did with sages in other parts of Palestine. The geographic borders for the material presented in this chapter have been defined as those which were delineated in rabbinic literature and the areas adjacent to them. The chapter discusses the settlements with rabbinic activity in Golan, Bashan and Hauran and then the one settlement with rabbinic activity in Transjordan. It also presents a list of sages, in order of generation, who were active in the Golan, Bashan and Hauran.
