Biblical History:
Yavne, is located on the Mediterranean coast in the same place as historical Yavne. Historically, Yavne has been conquered and ruled by the Canaanites, the Philistines, the Babylonians, the Phoenicians, the Romans, the Muslims and the Crusaders.
 
In 70CE, after the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem by the Romans, Yavne was known as the center of Jewish learning. This was due to Emperor Vespasian giving Rabbi Yohanan Ben Zakkai permission to establish a Jewish school, in which the foundations of the Mishnah were laid. In addition, Rabbi Yochanan Ben Zakkai moved the Sanhedrin to Yavne. It was here that Rabbinical Judaism emerged. Along with Rabbi Yochanan, Rabbis Gamaliel II and Ben Akiva taught their students, the future Jewish leaders and Rabbis.
