Who loves #JewishHistory?

2020 marks 300 years to the birth of one of the most important, most influential Jewish scholars of all times. How did he become so important?

Here’s a thread about Rabbi Eliyahu Ben Shlomo Zalman, commonly known as the #VilnaGaon >> Image
Rabbi Eliyahu was born on April 23rd 1720, in a small village called Sialiec, today in #Belarus but back then it was under the sovereignty of the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth >> ImageImage
From a very young age, little Eliyahu was remarkable. He was known for being a gifted ‘Talmid Chacham’ - an outstanding brilliant Torah scholar >>

I’m an avid history geek 🤓 and I got this idea from @GippersChutzpah!
My follower count is currently stuck in the mid ages. I’ll tweet some Jewish history milestones from along the years, according to my follower count. So come on, I’m 4 followers short of the first story...
On 13/12/1204, Moshe Ben Maimon AKA #Maimonides (Greek) and Ha’Rambam (Hebrew), died at 69 in Egypt.
A Philosopher, Physician, Astronomer and one of most important #Jewish Scholars of all times.
Buried in Tiberias @Israel, upon final request to be buried in the ancient homeland
WOW! 3 followers away from yet another milestone of #JewishHistory!
So far we learned about some pogroms 😠(1171 France, 1190 England) and Maïmōnídēs dying 😢(1204 Egypt).
JewishHistory is filled with sorrow and darkness but it gets better in the 2nd half of the 20th century 😉
