Forgotten Torah

 

Resh Lakish said: In the beginning, Torah was forgotten in Israel and Ezra came up from Bavel and established it. It was again forgotten, and Hillel the Babylonian came up and established it. Again it was forgotten, and Rabbi Hiyya and his sons came up and established it. (B. Sukkot 20.)
