The image above is from the Israeli town of Yavne.
This is one of the most significant places in modern Jewish history.
By modern, we mean post-temple.
Once Herod's Temple was destroyed, in the year 70 CE, and the temple era came to an end,
Rabbi Yochanan Ben Zacchai, after an adventure that rivals a modern Bond movie,
founded an academy for "modern" Jewish studies in the town Yavne.

Rabbinic Judaism owes its existence, at least in part, to the academy at Yavne.
