Tammuz 15, 5768

Rabbi Akivas children


Rabbi Elchanan Lewis

Question:
What became of Rabbi Akivas children?

Answer:
In tractate Moed Katan 21b it mentions that his sons died during his life time; One of which was Rabbi Shimon [Yalkut Shimoni Shmot 18:171].

In several places the Talmud brings Rabbi Yehoshua son of Rabbi Akiva [Shvuot 6a].
There are opinions [Seder Hadorot] that Rabbi Yehoshua ben Korcha is that very same son however the Tosfot [Shabbat 150a] prove this wrong.


I want to ask a question related to this answer
