Rava: (d. 352) Talmudic sage, student of Rav Nahman, Rav Sheshet, and Rav Joseph. He was also the student and son-in-law of Rav Hisda. He was a close friend and intellectual opponent of Abaye. Their halachic disputes—hundreds of which are recorded in the Talmud—epitomize the Talmud's dialectical logic. In all but a few instances, the halachah follows Rava’s opinion. Rava founded a school in his hometown of Mahuza, which later became the center of Jewish scholarship in Babylonia.
