Teveria is one of the four holy cities of Israel; the others are Jerusalem, Safed, and Hevron. Teveria was where the Sanhedrin was established during the Second Temple period. Many of the great Sages of Israel are buried there including Maimonides, RamBam,
Rabbi Akiva, Rabbi Ben Zakkai, Rabbi Meir Baal Hanesse, and Rabbi Haim Abulafya.
Many sources cite the writing of the Jerusalem Talmud in Teveria as well as the Mishna composed by Rabbi Yehuda
